Be A Bridge

Before you read any actual blogs or interact with the page.  I wanted you to know the why.  I want to remember the people who were “bridges” in my life.  I want to hold on to being a bridge in the life of someone else.  I want to highlight those who are bridges, those who get walked on without notice and without charging a fee.  I want to use every opportunity in life to be a bridge.

Bridges get walked on.  Bridges allow for continued interaction, they  provide the means of transportation where a chasm was before.  Bridges are often unnoticed.  Yet the destination would not be possible without them.  I’m creating this blog to allow the interaction of people with ideas.  Ideas allow us to bridge today’s reality with tomorrow’s dreams.  The hopeless dreamer in me intends to galvanize movement  toward spiritual formation,  connect communities to the other that is our one another, and  to grow myself as I grow from bridge to bridge.

David Russell once said, “The hardest thing in life to learn is which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn.”  The heart behind this is not only to build bridges, but to navigate which bridges to cross and to discern which bridges to burn.  My purest hope is that the sharing of thoughts will create “concept bridges” by:

  • Confronting our concepts of people;
  • Confronting people with concepts;
  • Connecting people with ideas and;
  • Connecting ideas with people.

I am a bridge and I am a bridge builder.  So, I’m concerned with personal growth which is spiritual growth.   I am concerned with life goals and achievements for they can be benchmarks of personal/spiritual growth.  I believe as we grow as human beings, we improve our ability to achieve goals while improving our overall experience on the way.

Sadly, we often exist away from the promise.  We often live in troubled waters.  We exist somewhere below the full life.  God calls us to more.  Jesus, the bridge over troubled waters, lifts us up and connects us to God.  In Him is the abundant life, the full life.  He is the bridge to everything that isn’t temporary.  My hope is for all to live to the full, according to the promises.   One step at a time, or maybe, one bridge at a time, we can all have the abundant life.  We can get there.    Thus my own hearts battle cry, “for the love of God Rudy, be a bridge.”
