The Rev. Dr. Brent Smith was my internship supervisor — what? eleven years ago — at All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa. And he’s started blogging, which is good because he’s a wonderful preacher and a sensitive writer. (And I reserve the right to disagree with him on many points of theology, ecclesiology especially.)
Blogging, once the domain of those of us born in the 60s (in my case, barely in the 60s) or later, I’ve noticed how more and more more-mature ministers — who would have been happy sharing their wisdom over drinks at General Assembly, or later on a mailing list — have found this remarkable medium. This remarkable medium, because it is public, that treats the laity with much more respect.
