(There will be another post today.)
For the next two week, we will be posting on our usual schedule. However, as you will see, these posts will be the permanent new pages that we will be posting in our new Page area.
Here is how we see this. We have selected these topics and will be coming up with a few more. This is not a complete list and is subject to change.
- The ARC
- Church membership considerations
- Church discipline issues
- Church contracts aka covenants problems
- How to leave a church even while under discipline
- Links to stories we don't have time to cover
- Go Fund Me/fundraising-new rules and ongoing projects
- Prayer requests
Each of these pages will have a few paragraphs with an overview of the subject. Then it will list a number of posts we did pertaining to the pages' topic and links. Each page will have a Page Potentate-a person to watch over the comments which and alert us if we have overlooked something, especially potential new stories or a person needing help We need some help given the fact that this blog is getting so many comments.
We will continue our new posts as usual after the pages are up. However, if there are breaking stories, like the Tom Chantry trial, we will keep you all updated. There will also be a few people looking over the new posts for potential blog tiffs and alerting us if we have overlooked them. It is our hope that having some permanent pages may help new readers who often ask similar questions that we have already dealt with.
Once this is completed. The Guy Behind the Curtain is going to update our blog rules with our approval. Also, we will be updating our biographies, etc. Also, a wonderful young woman is going to be working with our Facebook page since we just don't have the time. We'll introduce you to her as well.
We are open to your suggestions but would ask that you hold on those until we get this process underway. Once the first posts are up and running. we will consider other topics.
It is our goal and wish to be as personal as possible on this blog. We hate the idea of being talking heads because the two of us are so relational. We are still reeling from the interest in this blog and hope you all will bear with us as we muddle through. We hope this will create a bit of a breather for us to get to know our commenters better.
You all are the best readers ever. Please know we pray for you and care greatly about what you say. Comments are not words. They are the personal and important expressions of people and we never forget that there is a dearly beloved person behind each and every comment- even the weird ones!
