Then, it came to me. Not in some heavenly voice from behind a white light or out of a burning bush, but through my thought process I landed on the word Glean. Thankfully, (now anyway) Glean was already taken as a blog title and I needed something else. After trying more combinations, I really liked the new name and here's why.
Gather has multiple meanings and I like that so many apply to what the site is about:
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary -
1. to collect or accumulate (as in the posted content - music, book reviews, movies, devotions)
2. to reach a conclusion often intuitively from hints or through inferences (what we do with the information posted)
3. to come together as a group (I hope lots of you will continue to visit the site and share in the comments)
And Glean is defined -
1. to learn, discover, or find out, usually little by little or slowly.
For me, that sums it all up. This will be a place where we can come together, share in the collected content, and slowly open our eyes and ears to what God is saying to each and every one of us.
