Welcome Church Visits reader. It’s been 10 days since my final Alaska Dispatch News column. Some readers mistook my last two posts as news that I’d retired from writing the column. Although ADN decided to no longer carry my column, I’m continuing to visit churches, comment about those visits, and share related matters of faith.
After 8 1/2 years of writing for ADN via blogs and published columns, all without compensation, I felt the expenditure of many hundreds of hours visiting churches, researching topics of interest, and submitting written work was worth the cost. Unbelievably, I never even received a single free newspaper from ADN during all those years.
My website, churchvisits.com, contains a compendium of everything I’ve ever written for ADN. They’ve assured me that, for the foreseeable future, all of my recent writing for them will continue online at adn.com/churchvisits.
I’ll be posting each of my future articles to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If you do not use these social media, you can request to be included on article updates I’ll be emailing via MailChimp. This will result in your receiving an email for each new article so you can stay up-to-date. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be included for that list.
Future articles will cover:
-10 things I liked about church practices in 2016
=Altar calls – genuine or psychological blackmail?
-Demonic possession – real or fake?
-Faith and science – are they compatible?
-Three popular views about hell
=Church visits – good and bad
Thank you for your support of my writing. I look forward to keeping your minds active in the coming years. Very few writers tackle religion as I do across the U.S. It’s a unique emphasis that’s unconventional but engenders great interest.
Blessings for the New Year!
