I shared a link in my last post, but I think this deserves a post of its own. John Hobbins has shared why he can’t recommend Patheos. I can understand some of his points, while others I think are off target.
But one in particular seems way off base, the idea that by joining Patheos, we are putting ourselves in a position where we could not criticize Patheos. I’m new here, but my impression so far is that this is a place to encourage conversations, including disagreements across viewpoints. Patheos has been open to suggestions and changes, even in the little time I’ve been connected with the site.
And so here’s yet another invitation from me to tell me all the things you dislike about the site and about the blog in its new regeneration. Please, share your thoughts honestly, and perhaps John Hobbins will be persuaded that he doesn’t need to give up on this blog and others that have moved here.
In hommage to Doctor Who and the metaphor of the same individual time lord or blog in different regenerations, let me share a Doctor Who short from a few years ago which somehow I missed until tonight. It is called Timecrash, and features David Tennant and Peter Davison. Fans are sure to enjoy it.
Let the criticism begin!
