You're invited to join the Grace Roots Ning community!

Visit Grace Roots

Many of you know all about the various Ning communities that are out there, and are even members of some of them, as I am (see side column of this blog). A while back I decided to create my own social community - Grace Roots - that is based upon being established in grace, living in grace and growing in grace. I haven't done much with it yet. My "vision" of it is simply an online community where people can encourage one another in God's love and grace. There are various other excellent Ning communities, and my purpose is not to 'compete' with any of them, of course. It's simply to join people together in the pure gospel of grace and peace.

As I said, I haven't done much with this community yet, but that's where you come in! You can share your blog posts there, take part in discussions, post pictures, etc. With a Ning profile, you can have your very own page and customize it to your liking. You can become 'friends' with other people, and even share videos and music. You can send messages to others, share status updates, write on others' walls, share upcoming events, write notes, and so on and so on. Try it out, and let me know what you think! I'm open to your suggestions as to the look and feel of the site, as well as the content, etc.


  1. Joel,

    Ning? Where did that come from? The suburb next to mine is called Ningi (an Aboriginal word).

  2. Hi John,

    Ning is actually the website ( that allows people to create their own online social networks. Interesting that it's one letter off of the suburb next to you!

  3. Joel,
    Thanks for enlightening my ignorance :)

  4. Truth be told, I should've left out the word "Ning" because I had actually thought of this scenario... that it might appear as if Ning was part of the community's name. I've been sharing about this elsewhere, and have been leaving out "Ning" in the title.
