Today is an exciting day.
Readers of this blog have probably noticed a marked reduction in my updates to this beloved site. There are many reasons for this (a certain 2-year-old girl and 3-month-old boy at home being two of the main ones), and I won’t bore you with detailing them.
What I can say is that my recent decline in output is not because I am any less certain in my views about Genesis and evolution, or the need for those views to be fairly and winsomely presented in the public sphere. If anything, that conviction has only grown stronger.
In the past several years that I have been blessed with this site, easily the most gratifying aspect of the journey has been the opportunity to connect with countless believers all over the world, many of whom share my views of the grand story of our biological heritage and the wondrous creation accounts of scripture. In just three short years, I have watched God of Evolution blossom from a small personal blog into a true community that, for too long, has been without a voice in the evangelical and greater Christian population.
What is exciting about today is that it represents, I hope, the next step in our evolution — heh — as a community and as the church.
In short, I am seeking to broaden the voice of GOE, where anyone can submit content directly to the main site. Whether it be your testimony or another personal story, thoughts on science or scripture, reaction to a relevant news story, or just a funny meme or two, this is where your voice can be heard, where you can connect with folks who share your passion for truth.
While I will continue to write myself, as time and inclination allows, I hope this transition will eventually result in me taking the role of editor rather than lead contributor. While I have loved having the chance to share what I believe in and why, I have loved hearing from you even more, and I think it is more of the latter that is needed right now.
I can’t wait to see what you have to say.
