It's hard to believe that this humble web log has been in existence for only just over two weeks. Thanks in large part to fellow bloggers who have linked here, this blog has received more than 1,000 page views in its very short life. I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
It's often pointed out that theology is essentially dialogical: it is a dialog not only between God and man, but between men as well. None of the Church's doctrines were worked out in solitude and isolation; they all arose from dialog and dispute. It would therefore be wonderful if this blog, too, could become a place for dialog and dispute (though not, I hope, in the polemical sense of the word); I would enjoy seeing it become more "interactive," as people nowadays put it. I therefore welcome comments, criticism, corrections, and reflections – from both Orthodox and non-Orthodox – with the hope that this blog will become less didactic and more conversational.
