As of today, I have added a new feature to this blog—podcasts. The first one is ready for listening or downloading now. New ones will be released every two or three days.
Some of my readers (you know who you are, Dean and Jason) have been encouraging (prodding? cajoling? badgering? :-)) me to develop this aspect of ministry for some time. I may joke about the “pressure” which a few interested parties, mainly former students, have applied in order to persuade me to undertake this venture, but the truth is that, without their constant encouragement, I would never have done it.
I am grateful that they had confidence to believe that I could do a creditable job with this endeavor. Time will tell whether or not their confidence was well-placed. I will do my best to make it so.
At least in the beginning, the content of the podcasts will be mainly what I have already written in earlier blog posts. I have selected some two dozen posts which fairly well summarize some of the essential convictions and aspirations which I have been trying to communicate since I started writing this blog sixteen months ago. I will release them as podcasts at the rate of two or three per week.
In time, I plan to develop content especially for the podcast—material designed to make the best use of this audio format. Both my energy and my creativity are limited, but I want the podcast to supplement the blog, not simply duplicate it.
Until then, I hope that you will find these blog posts in oral form to be helpful and informative. I welcome your comments and suggestions at any time.
To access the podcast, click on the tab at the top of this page and follow the instructions to listen to a podcast now or to download it for future use.
I cannot adequately convey my appreciation for you who have taken such an interest in this ministry and who read my blog posts on a regular basis. The internet has opened a vast new field of opportunity for communication, and millions of people just like me are taking advantage of it. With such an array of blogs and podcasts and websites from which to choose, I am particularly gratified that you have chosen to spend some of your valuable time with me. I hope you will find this new feature worth your time.
Grace and peace to you, and, as always…
Soli Deo Gloria.
