Goodbye, Vox Nova

Goodbye, Vox Nova April 20, 2012

For flighty, sentimental reasons, I will no longer be writing at Vox Nova. As I prepare to move from Wabash College to the University of North Dakota, into a new chapter of life, I think that the time has come for some change.

To all who have read my work here over the years: thank you. I have benefited greatly from being present here.

Yesterday, I gave my second and final “chapel talk” at Wabash: From “Adios” to “a Dios”: Goodbye, Wabash. I think it also captures my sentiments as I leave Vox Nova. I offer it as my final contribution here:

"How jaded must I be to feel the words of bishops against any atrocity today ..."

"I was also thinking of a song I heard, and in fact misheard, in childhood, ..."

"I can actually see this text being read in two very opposite ways. Unfortunately it ..."

"There seems to be a real tendency on the part of some people in the ..."
