Breaking news

with 8 comments

I imagine that two or perhaps three of the regular four readers of this blog will be aware of Reformation21. In particular, you might be following their blog, where doubtless you have been frustrated by the shallowness of Derek Thomas, the vagueness of Carl Trueman, the shortsightedness of Thabiti Anyabwile, and the existence of Paul Levy, not to mention the failures of other authors.

Well, from now on you will have another reason to shudder and complain. I have been invited to join the blogging team at Ref21 and have issued a tentative, “Yes,” to said invitation.

I am not sure at present quite what that means for The Wanderer. I have no intention of simply packing up and moving on, in that sense, and I will need to find my feet and establish a voice for the Ref21 platform, but it is likely to mean at least some shift in the balance of my blogging. Quite what will continue to go online here, and what will make its appearance over there will only become apparent over time. There may be a little cross-pollination from time to time, but I have undertaken not simply and constantly to regurgitate things from here over there (although some of the longer pieces in particular are likely to make their appearance in both places eventually).

I am grateful for your prayers as I make whatever transition is required. I am conscious that with greater opportunity comes greater responsibility, and I hope that I will be able to make a genuine contribution both in terms of the balance of the writing at Reformation21 and in terms of the investment in their readership. For this I will need much wisdom and grace, and it will only come from on high.

I hope that, if you are not already following Ref21, you might consider doing so. If half of the readers here were to link up there also, doubtless the hike in their reading figures would make them all sit up a good millimetre or two.

You can find my first effort here.

  1. So, can we leave comments here since we can’t at Ref21?

    • Yup, if they’re about the particular post I have written, are directed to me and not through me to others, and if you accept my ongoing right to deal with them as I believe to be appropriate . . . oh yes, and you need to speak often and warmly of my character and efforts.

    • But blogging is so of the moment, I’m, like, way past this.

  6. Well, I have been struggling with my web browser, so I’d missed this piece of news. I say this:

    BOO!

    BOOOOO!

    Down with American Christianity robbing British talent.

    Down with this sort of thing, I say!
