This blog is a place where a small group of Christians who know one another practice the discipline of spiritual conversation. If you know us and want to join in, just post a comment. The first time you comment it will await moderator approval. After your first comment is approved, your future comments will appear on the blog immediately. If you are not known personally by several in our community, your comment will probably be deleted. Don’t be offended. You’re welcome to eavesdrop, but we want to keep this a small group discussion.
After some time of blogging this way, I can now commend it to others. We have found that conversation between strangers often leads to an unedifying escalation of rhetoric. For a long time I stayed out of the blogosphere because I couldn’t stand the tone of many commenters. But when the blog is used as a supplement to, rather than a replacement for, real community, then it can be a very helpful way to encourage one another daily. When you know that you will see all your readers on Sunday, it puts a check on your bluster.
UPDATE: The regular readers have probably noticed I’ve loosened up this policy lately. The regular readers have probably noticed that’s because they don’t comment much any more and I’m getting bored. I know, I know, I don’t post as much anymore, so what do I expect. So I’m publishing just about everyone’s comment now and will do so until someone makes me sorry I did.
