I have been surprised at the response this blog has received in the past year. Mid-year it passed the milestones of 500 posts and 100,000 views.
You can go here to see a report on activity for the entire year. While many of those views were by casual visitors who may never return to visit again, there are also many regulars. We welcome the casual visitors; we love the regulars! Especially those who comment.
I usually interact with comments, as this give me an opportunity to expand on what I have said, clarify – and sometimes even to modify my views. As I said to one church elder once, “I believe that my opinions are the very best in the world.” Then a pause while he looked shocked before I added, “…because as soon as someone convinces me he has a better one, I adopt it!”
Some of your comments have made me re-examine my opinions to adopt better ones, for which I thank you.
I hope to be more consistent in posting this year than I was last year – and I especially want to examine a couple of general subjects in more depth: worship, especially the Lord’s Supper, and the Kingdom of God.
I have not forgotten my promise to have another segment (or maybe two) in my review of N. T. Wrights 1995 book, The Lord and His Prayer.
I’m also teaching a series right now on the Kingdom, and expect to use some material from that in discussing God’s kingdom.
I also want to get back into my earlier custom of posting a brief communion meditation each week. I would also like to do some more in depth looks at what the communion is all about as it contributes to the life of the individual Christian and in the life of the church.
Please come along for the ride!
