Why write?

I saw a blog post this week that had me thinking a little more critically why I have this blog.  So, here is my shot at the question: why do I write this?

To share some ideas:

My brain is full of lots of random thoughts.  Sometimes it is just fun to put those thoughts on (virtual) paper.  If I’m lucky, maybe it will make others think.  If I’m really lucky, it will make me think too.  The very act of committing a thought to writing makes me slow down and think it over in greater depth.

To practice writing:

In seminary, I have to write a lot.  This is good practice.

To practice critical thinking:

In my first class at sminary, the main point was learning how to critically analyze situations, topics, books, theology, etc.  So putting the two items above together, writing helps me sort out some of my thoughts, and forces me to practice my critical thinking skills.

So if you’re following along, thanks.  … and feel free to comment to help me think even deeper about what I post.  I have several topics in various draft stages, so I hope to write a little more frequently this year.
