    Change of Address

    It's time for a change.

    Very soon, I'll be updating my digital platforms, conducting a website redesign, and launching an effort to generate diverse content in several settings that are reflective of my general interests and broad topics of inquiry. I plan to keep writing about Christianity, religion, philosophy, and theology, as well as books, pop culture, technology, and the political. 

    I have some experience with digital migration, and whenever changes like the ones I'm making take place, it is not uncommon for connections to dissolve and fissures to open. I started playing on the internet in the late 1990s by setting up a GeoCities page, had a Xanga site in the early 2000s, later moved over to Wordpress, and then made my home with Squarespace in 2009. Each time I've made a jump I've improved the delivery but lost track of a few friends. The lines connecting us to one another on the web are hidden from view, and we do not always know when they become frayed.

    But if you're reading this, I'd like to stay in touch. Whether you are an occasional reader or a devoted friend (let's be real: you're probably family), I want you to know where I'm going. If you read via email or subscribe with RSS, I want to remain connected.  But in order for that to happen I will need your help.

    If you would like to stay connected you can send me an email and I'll let you know when the changeover takes place. You can also leave a comment below.

    If you're reading this announcement in your email inbox because you subscribe via RSS, please find a way to be in touch. Send me an email. Contact me on Facebook or Twitter. It would be nice to hear from you. It would also help me to keep you in the loop.

    If you've been paying attention using a online reader like Feedly then we should remain connected if you are subscribed to my primary URL: My address will go with me. From what I've observed, however, sometimes there are hiccups. If you want to make sure we stay connected, reach out so I can send you an email when the new site is live.

    A few people are connected via my Squarespace URL extension, Kudos if that is you and you're still reading. That address will be going away. Again, contact me if you want to remain connected, or update your reader.

    I've never been a prolific blogger. But I've spent more time in the last year writing offline than I have writing anywhere in the previous four, and in 2018 I I'll be doing more of the same, writing curriculum, devotional material, and friendly (often lengthy) epistles.

    I anticipate there will be spillover in the coming year. Some of the stuff I write will need to find a home on the web, so I'm carving space for expression. I have made several transitions over the past year, especially with regard to my creative life. And there are more to come.

    So stay in touch.
