Welcome to Standing on My Head!

This blog used to be hosted at Patheos, but I created my own site because I wanted to get away from the increased commercialism. I also wanted to return to the more personal and relational style that I first had when blogging. As the readership increased at Patheos we lost the personal contact. I had to close the comments box because there were simply too many comments to moderate and extremists were using my combox as their soapbox.

Having a subscription gateway helps us return to that smaller, more personal blog. The main blog posts will still be free for everyone to read. My archived material from Patheos is now here, and will also be free. However there is a section reserved for Donor-Subscribers. You can support this blog and enjoy extra content at five different levels. Check it out here.

My blog, podcasting, writing and speaking is my contribution to the New Evangelization. I encourage you to subscribe to help keep me blogging. Your subscription fee helps me pay for the design, maintenance, promotion and hosting costs of this website, and helps the Longenecker family budget.

Thanks again for visiting and God bless you.

I’m in, Sign me up!
