It’s getting harder and harder to come up with something to talk about each week and, obviously, sometimes I forget. I really love writing for this blog and I’ve worked hard for and appreciate each and every person who has ever taken time to read my ramblings.
But nothing happens here worth talking about.
Literally, the highlights of my life since the last post have been finding four dead centipedes in the living room on consecutive mornings, getting 38 mosquito bites the size of quarters, trying to teach my dog not to eat plastic and finding out that our mechanic hasn’t found a rear axle for our car yet, so we’ll likely be without transportation for a few more weeks.
Oh – that and the few moments of panic yesterday when I looked out the porch window and realized the dog was in the yard playing with a pair of my underwear that she’d stolen from the bathroom floor. But aside from that. . .
The company I work (very part-time) for has put me in charge of launching a new campaign, however, so I guess I could do some shameless self-promotion and talk about that.
Part of speech: verb
Definition: Love God, Love People.
History and usage: Coined in 2013 by the founder of LOGOLOPE, inc., a business and aviation consulting firm, the term “logolope” is intended to remind company employees and those in the community that the easiest way to begin building a Christ-centered lifestyle is to remember how much love God has for us and then reflect that love out into the world. Treat others as you want them to treat you, but more importantly, treat others as God has already treated you. It includes patience, understanding and kindness, as well as a desire to be more like God.
The logolope campaign is primarily social media-based and focuses on the use of the logolope “hashtag” (#logolope) on Twitter and Facebook to create a conversation among social media users. Promotional products are also being created for distribution to those who would be interested in helping spread this idea in other communities. You never know who might walk by and ask about your shirt or your wristband, thus creating a door of opportunity to introduce them to a simple way to begin their own foundations.
Visit the campaign Facebook page or follow @logolope on Twitter to get product updates, tips and ideas to strengthen your foundation, applicable Bible verses, and to share your stories and hear stories from others who are striving to Love God, Love People in their daily lives. Also, try to include #logolope in your own Facebook and Twitter updates, maybe when you see someone loving others as God loves them or when you feel inspired by a particular Bible verse or sermon point. Join the conversation and be part of the movement.
Thanks for the support, and let’s see how far we can take this. Who knows? WWJD was pretty big.
