How was your week, dear friends? My new blogging schedule has been keeping me busy! I’m really enjoying being more organised about when I blog and what I blog about. It’s funny, I thought that as I blogged more often I might run out of ideas, but on the contrary, by God’s grace (and through your comments and interactions) I’ve got plenty of content ideas to keep the posts flowing in the coming weeks.
The week in review
For my Monday Music post I shared a beautiful Christian video meditation on a well-known passage from the book of Philippians. The response was amazing, but of course all credit goes to Jonathan Ogden who created the video. You can watch it here.
On Wednesday I shared a Q&A with my friend and fellow blogger David Robertson. David shared about perennialism (his chosen spiritual path), and also about the sate of Christianity and religion in general in China, where he lives. You can read the interview here.
In my Thursday Theology post we got stuck into the various different types of determinism, which is the idea that what we experience is the result purely of cause-and-effect chains from the past. I offered a critique of this idea. You can read the article here.
This week’s Friday Philosophy post looked at the ancient Greek philosopher Xenophanes and his rebellion against polytheism in favour of monotheism. He believed that religion should be more about rational thinking than simply subscribing to traditionally held beliefs. You can read the post here.
On Saturday I shared my new song! It’s a riff-driven rocky number with lyrics about the immense power we are giving to robots and artificial intelligence in the digital age. You can listen to the song, entitled ‘Machines Taking Over the World’, here.
Please note that this was an unusually busy week on the blog! I normally post three times a week. I try to make sure I post only once a day at the most, as I never want my followers to feel bombarded. If you have any feedback, I’m always open to making changes to the schedule, so let me know!
Some Random Thoughts to Round Off the Week
- This week I reached the 1000 follower milestone! Woohoo! Thank you so much 😁
- I created a new Twitter header, which I’m quite chuffed with. If we’re not already connected on Twitter, you can find me here.
- I’ve arranged to interview a Church of England curate about the state of the church (amongst other things) so I’ll be bringing you that Q&A soon.
- The heating in my flat is now fully functional, for which I feel tremendously blessed. The ‘cold snap’ is over, and Spring is on the way!
Please know that every Sunday afternoon I have some quality prayer time, and I always lift up my blog followers to the Lord, asking for His blessing and favour over your lives in the coming week. If you ever have a specific prayer request, you’re welcome to contact me. Have a wonderful week and thank you for following! ❤️
