In the midst of your fulsome praise of this blog and its design–in response to some silly words from Redeemed Rambling–you DID include a few suggestions. Thanks to Stewart Lundy of Bulldog Media (click the dog in the sidebar for all of your website needs), we have fulfilled your dreams. There is now a “Preview” feature for the comments. The black borders have been lightened to a dark grey, which also seems to make the white appear lest stark, being more friendly to the eyes. Some of you have complained about the field of the blog becoming narrower, but that is apparently an optical illusion, since nothing about that has been changed. Anyway, thanks for your suggestions. Especially for the suggestions to keep things, for the most part, the way they are!
You will also notice a visual touch at the top: Cranach’s seal. The great artist/entrepreneur/printer/politician and exemplar of the doctrine of vocation would sign his paintings with a stylized squiggle of his family seal: A winged dragon, crowned, bearing a ring. That is the logo of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, which is the institutional home of this blog, and it is fitting that it be displayed here.
How would you interpret the dragon iconography?
