I began talking with Jonathan Cliff over blogs, email and twitter a couple a years ago those few cyber connects have grown into a God connection that I am so grateful for. I know that I felt like there were no other kids pastors out there that thought the way I thought about a whole host of issues, so when Jonathan and I started talking I was so encouraged to know that there was at least one other, skinny, white, male, puppet hating kids guy out there.
In the past couple of years I have gotten to know JC (that’s what his homies call him.) and I have been so blessed to have a friend, and fellow minister who I can call up and get honest feedback from. From his insightful blogposts to twitter conversations and phone calls I have learned much from Jonathan over the past couple of years and thank God for brining him into my life. I also appreciate his sense of humor, the guy kills me all the time. It is not often I talk with someone via instant message and laugh my head off the whole time.
Ministry can be lonely at times but I have learned that it doesn’t have to be. I am blessed to count him amongst my friends.
If you are not reading Jonathan’s blog you need to be. His last series on kids pastors he hates was stellar.

Sounds like you found a great friend!
Ha! Brought a tear to my eye. 🙂
I like how JC has been back-pedaling with his hate series, explaining that it's not about the hate and how your link above literally says "kids pastors he hates." So funny!
