After moving my main site to RevScottWells.com I just about stopped writing here. Which seems like a waste, and worse makes this seem like an abandoned site. So I’ve decided to make this blog a weblog again and log helpful or interesting things I find in daily life.
Now that this blog supports interests aside from those feature on my main blog, RevScottWells.com, I don’t write for it so much. And at some point, the individual pages links became corrupt. You could see posts on the front page, but couldn’t click through. I’ve now fixed this and regret the disruption to would-be readers.
From here on, the focus of my writing ministry will be at RevScottWells.com, and that is interpreting Universalist Christianity for today, particularly in practical and popular ways, and identifying and developing methods to operate churches and other ministries more efficiently and economically, including worship and leadership development, plus short notices and news as appropriate. An… Continue reading Moving the ministry to RevScottWells.com
So, it’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post, but I’ve not been inactive. And since I have the day off today, I thought I’d catch you up. Over the next couple of days, I’ll be putting up two chapters from the 1946 Parish Practice in Universalist Churches as text; I’ve previously posted it as… Continue reading Transcription workflow notes
So, my blog is old enough that the character set is all goofy. Translation, when I try to write something in Esperanto with circumflexes, I get question marks or oddments in their place. Example: ĉiutaga preĝejo. This will not do. This blog needs to display in UTF-8, but doesn’t. And converting the database is not… Continue reading Changing the character set, or trying to
Short update: I lost my oldest domain — universalistchurch.net — because I don’t have the email addresses I used to register it years ago. I feared I might have to transition to universalistchristian.net, but lo! I got the original domain this week. Whew! (I transferred it to a new owner: me.) Universalistchurch.net reads as universalistchristian.net… Continue reading UniversalistChurch.net reclaimed
Well, I can’t seem to reclaim the universalistchurch.net domain, despite my repeated appeals to the registrar. (I don’t have access to either email address with which I registered it aeons ago.) But I own universalistchristian.net, so after some tinkering I’ve moved the site dedicated to the “Christian hope in the final restoration of all souls,… Continue reading Long live UniversalistChristian.net
Greetings, dear readers: A quick post to ask “what resources would you like to see here?” That could be theological, liturgical or administrative. Something I create, or something I uncover. Please note in the comments. Here to be helpful; without you I’m nothing!
So, I may pivot towards longer form, evergreen writing; at this phase, everyday short blogging is too much work and not terribly rewarding. I particular, I want to write Universalist theology and other works demonstrating scholarship. So, a request. Who out there would be willing to review ideas? And what would you like to see… Continue reading Interested in Universalist scholarship?
I’m not much for resolutions: I rarely start well, forget them quickly and then late in the year reproach myself for failure. Why bother? But I will make plans for the blog. I mean it both as a notebook for me and (more importantly) a resource and commentary for you, the readers. A review of… Continue reading Plans for 2015
