I’m happy to announce that I am now blogging for the “Key Voices” blog of the Day1 website. Day1 is the website for a syndicated radio show, hosted by my Facebook friend Peter Wallace, that is sponsored by a consortium of mainline Protestant churches. The website describes its mission this way: “Through sermons, blogs, and video & audio resources, Day1 proclaims a passionate faith for thinking people.” The Key Voices section of the website feature a variety of bloggers, most of whom are Protestant clergy. I’ve crashed the party, hopefully bringing a fresh perspective to the conversation as a Catholic layperson — and of course, I’m more interested in talking about mysticism and contemplation than about denominational identities or church politics, so I hope that what I have to say will be useful both to regular Day1 readers as well as to folks used to reading my blog.
I’m thinking that Day1 will be a place where I can explore storytelling and perhaps some more personal insights into my life and my faith, than I am accustomed to doing here at anamchara.com. We’ll see how it goes. To start off, I wrote about the newest member of our family (Margery, the Energizer Kitten) and you can read the post here: A Little Reminder
Not to worry: this blog will always come first, and whenever I do post something to the Key Voices blog, I’ll post a link here so you can go check it out. I only expect to post to Day1 once or twice a month, depending on how it goes.
Of course, when you do follow the link and ready my post, check out some of the other bloggers at Day1. There’s some insightful writing going on over there.
