Winston Churchill is said to have remarked, once, “I have a hundred ideas a day, and sometimes one of them is a good one.” I cannot boast such a ratio, and this blog has no such pretensions. In any case there is no shortage of outlets for good ideas. My problem is a different one. There are things I would like to say, particularly on controverted theological issues, but which I would rather not say in the public media for fear of drawing attention to Christian disagreements. That’s the main purpose of this blog. Whether it can serve any more elevated purpose remains to be seen.
