Welcome! This is post 1. To kick off this blog, here’s a bit about me and the purpose of this blog!
Who Am I?
I’m Christina, and I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That being said, I am in no way an official representative of the church, so don’t take what I write about in this blog as anything other than my own experiences, perspectives, and testimony. I do not speak for the church in any way.
I will, of course, reference scriptures and teachings from the church that have helped me understand the gospel and my own testimony throughout my life.
What’s the Point of the Seeking Christ Blog?
I believe that people of all religions can learn from and become better by interacting respectfully with each other. Whether you are Christian or not, religious or not, I hope that you come away from reading this blog feeling like you have been strengthened in your personal faith.
Every Sunday, I’ll be adding a new blog post. The posts range in topics from questions and doubts I’ve faced to things I’ve learned or had ideas about. I think that as we seek to follow Christ, a lot of us face similar struggles. We can learn a lot by sharing our personal thoughts and experiences with each other.
The point of this blog, then, is to bring people together in the recognition that we aren’t perfect and we do have a lot to learn, but also that we can always turn to Christ in our struggles to become better.
What’s with the Sheep?
Ah, the sheep picture AKA Seeking Christ’s logo. I chose a sheep as the logo of this blog/website because Jesus is our Shepherd. He’s the one who leads us, so if we’re seeking Christ, then we are the sheep who follow Him.
That means that sometimes we get lost, confused, stained, and stuck. But it also means that Christ is always on the lookout for us. As soon as we turn toward Him, He’s there guiding us, teaching us, cleaning us, and freeing us.
In other words, the sheep in the logo represents all of us on our journey to seek Christ. It represents our struggles and our redemption. It reminds us of virtue and sacrifice.
The sheep helps show us our relationship to Christ.
