Welcome to the Blogosphere, Dr. G!

My adopted godfather has been writing a one-paragraph update on his life and sending it out to an ever-expanding circle of friends every week (now every other week, since he was elected an elder at his church some time back and needed to cut back on other time commitments) for several years now. His reflections are masterpieces of brevity and insight. I wish I had the discipline to write one well-honed paragraph rather than prattling on ad nauseum. Maybe if I did, I'd post here more often.

Anyway, these updates have now found a home on the world wide web in the form of a blog hosted at the website of Multnomah Bible College and Seminary.

Not that it makes any difference in the grand scheme of things, but I would like to point out to the scant few human beings who read this blog and the even smaller number of people who actually care that this faculty blog was my idea. A year and a half ago, when Garry generously invited me to Portland for the launch of the new and improved Decision Making and the Will of God, I expressed admiration for both his Updates and his personal website, and suggested that he publish the former on the latter in the form of a blog. The response was something to the effect of, "What? You think I should engage in political punditry on the internet?" (This was about the time that blogging had drawn the attention of the more-traditional media for the influence it had on the 2004 election.) I protested that blogs didn't have to be about politics; they could be about anything. Like the Friesen Updates.

So I didn't sell my case. No skin off my nose if the rest of the world missed out on the Friesen Updates; after all, I got them in my inbox every week. But now, finally, someone at Multnomah (Development? Recruiting? Some web-savvy student with time on his hands?) has seen fit to put an end to the exclusivity of an e-mail list and share the Friesen Fortnightly with anyone who cares to look. Good move.

Actually it was the schools web developer. : )
