Winding Down….

As has often been the case here for the last number of years, when things get busy at school, posting here drops off. I am down to my last 4 weeks on the Master’s program at the University of Dallas, and I have several major exams and papers coming due soon. After that, I have to write the Master’s thesis, which I plan to do over the summer along with preparing for my new teaching job that I start in the Fall.

Teaching will be enjoyable, I think, and will help me feel like I’m doing something “hands on” for the Kingdom at last. Honestly, I often get tired of the blogosphere, which so often seems abstract and impersonal. I often wonder how many people are even reading this stuff, and whether any of the ones who never say anything are finding any of it even remotely useful. Sometimes I wonder what the point of it is. Though, occasionally, I do get glowing letters thanking me for something I wrote that someone found really helpful.

At any rate, I’ve been thinking that it’s possible I’ve gone as far as I can with Societas Christiana, and it might be time to do something else. I have an idea as to what, but I’ll keep it under wraps for now until I can think it through more. Suffice it to say that it will be something more explicitly oriented toward a defense of the Reformation than this blog has (at least explicitly) been. Stay tuned if you will.

    I’m one of those silent ones who “never say anything.” I’ve been reading your blog for about a year and have always found it to be a step above everything else in the blogosphere. It sounds dangerously close to “way to go, Tim” but it is refreshing to see a dedicated Christian putting a classical education to work on things that relate to the Kingdom of God. I’ll miss your blog if you decide to discontinue it but I think teaching will be a great opportunity for you to influence people–perhaps in a bigger way than you do now. As a college student myself in California’s notorious system, I can only long for a teacher as knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the pursuit of truth as you are. Whatever you do, God be with you and God bless.

    Hello Tim,

    I have benefited enormously from your podcasts. They have really help me appreciate the medieval period, and I agree about the prevailing problem with protestant historiography. With this website and those of your fellow bloggers (like Wedgeworth), I would have not gained an appreciation of the magisterial reformation. I feel like by restoring these original protestant roots I have restored my Christian catholic identity. I send you website as a link to friends and other churchmen quite often.
    Even if you stop adding material to it, please keep the website up on the internet as a resource.

    Thanks Brian and Charles. I appreciate the feedback. Brian, I especially appreciate your remarks about the value of classical topics for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.

    Charles, I’m glad the podcasts have been so helpful. I plan to get back to doing those once my schedule is less hectic. I have a lot of ideas for future episodes; just have to find the time to put them together.

    If I do decide to do something else, I will of course keep all this website’s archives online – probably will just move them to a different address.
