You might be a part of a church. What an experience that can be! Of course, that can be true in many faithful, positive, self-serving and negative ways. This blog is a place where all of those come together. Hopefully, when reading this blog you will laugh, think, Amen! and want to shoot the messenger. My love for the church, though, is so great that I have no other option than to be as honest and straightforward as I think I can be when it comes to what the church does. Sometimes that is another celebration and other times it’s another “come home to Jesus” moment.

  • I’m just another follower of The Way. I came to know God’s love when I was 18 years old. Since that time in my life I have tried to figure out what it means to love God in return.
  • Those beautiful people I live with? Well, what can I say? I’m another husband with a beautiful wife and another dad with three children. They all remind me constantly of what it means to live a life of love.
  • And, I’m trying everything I can to be another UMC minister—a good one, too. The funny thing is that you get to decide if I am, but then again you don’t. Does that make sense?

You can expect to read another post 3-4 times a week. Regular posts include Music Monday, another weekend linkdump and Sunday’s sermon with a few comments a la carte.

There are several ways to keep up with anotherjohn.com.

  • You could get in the habit of typing that address in your browser’s address bar; that would designate you as a top notch anotherjohn.com reader. 
  • Then again you can subscribe to receive email updates of all the latest posts. Just think about it, a free copy of anotherjohn.com sent to you and your email account—priceless. 
  • Finally, well there are probably other fancy things you can do to read a blog, but I don’t know about them—you can subscribe to the feed in your favorite news reader (Good reader, etc).

Is there anything I’m leaving off that you are just dying to know? I probably left it off for a reason. Still, you can ask. Follow me on Twitter (@RevJohnFletcher), and keep up with my church on Twitter (@ShinerFUMC) and on Facebook (Fan Page).

Finally, a disclaimer I think I am supposed to make. What you read here is mine all mine (muhahahaha). It should be noted my less than exemplary opinions reflect me and my less than exemplary self, not my less than exemplary denomination or church. Did that come out right?

Did I mention I'm an Eagles fan?

Stay blessed...john
