Welcome, folks!  Glad you’re here!

If you’re looking for the future home of “The Deacon’s Bench,” you’ve found it.   Over the next few days, I’ll be rolling out the welcome mat and unwrapping the good china.  I hope to have a Blogwarming party — complete with eggnog! — once I get settled.  But feel free to snoop around the rest of the Patheos site and get to know the neighborhood.


  1. Though I don’t live in this neighborhood, I visit as often as possible. I think you’ll like the new digs. I hope Trolley brings you over safe and sound. See you around!

  2. Elizabeth Scalia says:

    Good luck, Deacon!

  3. Deacon Bill says:

    Welcome to your new home, Greg! Hope the move goes well. See you hear often!

    God bless,


  4. Deacon Norb says:

    Have absolutely enjoyed being a part of the old “Deacon’s Bench” and expect to have this re-incarnation fit right in place.

    Keep paying attention to the news suggestions I send.

    Only the very best of blessings!

  5. Candidate Dave says:

    Thanks for all you do. I’ve passed your name and addres to the rest of the class (11 of us in total).
    Have a holy and fun Christmas!
    Paz Y bien

    Greg, It looks good. My only concern is that it is slow loading. This is a symptom of many blog sites including belief net but this is even worse.

    I use dialup, not by choice. but there are few affordable options where I live.

    I will pray that my patience improves so that I will continue to visit the Bench.

    Thanks for your voice crying out.

  7. Looking forward to stopping by with a batch of brownies or something to welcome you here! Welcome!
