I have listened to and appreciated the RZIM staff for many years. I also had the privilege of attending a summer institute around 10 years ago.
I participated in and moderated some e-mail forums many years ago and always struggled with the balance of lively discussions and effective moderation. I fully believe that with God’s help there is a real opportunity to do it right and my prayer is that this will be one of those places.
I have lived in eastern South Dakota my entire life, am married with 2 kids and a year old granddaughter. We just moved to Sioux Falls and I have been a computer application developer and manager for my entire career.
I listen to a lot of RZIM podcasts and realized it is time to join.
Many times a podcast will make me think of something I would like to understand better in detail, ask a clarifying question and even sometimes share my thoughts. In short, have an ongoing experience something like the Summer Institute.
