Readers of the blog may have noticed a certain slump in my usual activity. There is a method to my laziness. I’ve slowed down for the summer, then I went on a fantastic pilgrimage to France where I did not have the time or the constant Wi-fi of which I am dependent.
However, I have also been going through somewhat of a personal transition over the summer. I’ve been taking time to re-assess my priorities, look again at my writing and what I should be doing. As you will know, the whole media-communications scene keeps shifting. Traditional writing is giving way to more and more words expended on the ever hungry internet. Should I write any more books? I think not. Then I have an idea for one. Then I get started and I need to finish. Then there’s podcasting. I love doing it, but it takes time for me to produce them all and the need for getting video content out is nagging at me.
Plus I have ideas for drama and fiction that I would really like to do. Shall I put off the journalistic writing, blogging and theological book writing for the plays and fiction that are bubbling in my brain? If you have any insights or advice I would be glad to hear it.
But in the meantime, I’ll keep blogging and posting archived articles for the Donor Subscribers at least once a week if I can. Sorry that for the last month or so this part of the blog has slipped!
So here are four articles uploaded for the Archived Articles section of the blog. This section is reserved for Donor Subscribers at the premium level and above. Just as a reminder–the blog has no third party ads. This is where most online websites gather the revenue to pay their bills. It is free to read most stuff online, but it is not free to produce. There are design and maintenance costs, software subscriptions in order to provide all the slick services readers take for granted, promotion costs and development costs.
The comparatively few people who are Donor Subscribers help to cover the costs for the tens of thousands who read this blog worldwide. So if you would like to help with those costs and receive some considerable extra benefits, please to the Subscribe page here and sign up. Many thanks!
Here are this week’s four articles:
- Can Evangelicals and Catholic Be Friends? – This piece reflects on the extraordinary meeting between Pope Francis and some American Evangelical Charismatic leaders.
- A Chestertonian Riddle – What are miracles? God’s practical joke on materialists?
- Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire – This is chapter nine of my book Quest for the Creed. In the Archived Articles upload I’m giving a chapter of this book week by week. Eventually Donor Subscribers will have the whole book free.
- Conversion or Conquest? – What is the response to the threat of radical Islam?
