I asked Farid Wardan, head admin at givemetruth.net, to put together some thoughts about InFocus as part of our third anniversary celebration. His thoughts are below:
I remember our conversation as clear as day. Jason and I were sitting in the car outside SBBC, we’d only known each other for a few weeks at that point but the lengthy discussions we had on a regular basis had clearly revealed our like-mindedness on many issues, and our similar visions for the future of our movement in Australia.
GMT was in its infancy and Jason expressed a desire to have an online, Australian resource for articles by and for fundamentalists. We spent a good portion of that day (and many more thereafter!) working through the requirements of getting something like that happening, and shortly after the “Fundamentalist Resource Centre” was born.
From day one Jason has proved a capable editor and writer, and last year saw the transition to the current name and format in use for the site. Yesterday marked the third anniversary of InFocus and looking back at what InFocus has come through and achieved, I’m thankful for the encouragement and helpful resource that it’s been to me. I’m thankful for Jason’s perseverance and diligence in making it what it is. Above all I’m thankful for God’s grace which empowers us to serve him.
As we plan and prepare for the future it’s our hope and prayer that this place be a blessing, and our desire to see InFocus expand to a broader audience and larger writing team! If you have any suggestions or would like to share how InFocus has been a blessing to you, then please direct your comments to Jason.
