Ok, minor thing, but I've added a Comments feature courtesy of Haloscan
. So PLEASE feel free to leave me comments on whatever you read here. If I didn't want to know what everyone thinks about what I write, I wouldn't have spent the minute it took to add this feature.
I haven't seen the movie yet. I've heard all about why I should, and I probably will in the next week or two. But of all the reasons I've read NOT to go see the movie, I think that this one
by Frank Schaeffer is probably the most intelligent and best thought-out that I've heard.
Well, I'm taking the plunge. Welcome to View from the Pew, a daily (I hope) look into the random ramblings of an evangelical Christian.
In this blog, I hope to give some commentary on current events, a little theological discussion, a little rant about my day, a little humor -- in other words, a little bit of everything. My main idea behind this is to give ongoing content to the people who stop by my web site (wkelly.org), since I haven't been getting that updated very often. The blog, on the other hand, is easier to update, so I'll be able to do more frequent updating here. I haven't forgotten the other site (I'm paying for it, after all), but the things I want to put there go beyond the whole 'instant post/blog/commentary' thing. I plan on putting more scholarly things over there -- this is where I'm going to just hang out.
I had planned on hosting this on my own site, but I can't figure out the FTP settings for my DotEasy account. If anyone knows that, PLEASE let me know!! The way things stand, I won't even be able to see this blog from work, because of the filtering system that the school uses.
I'm not going to do the whole biography thing right now. If I'm doing this blog thing right, you'll know a lot about me soon, just from reading the blog. Suffice to say, I'm 36, married, and have an adorable daughter who is 2 1/2. You'll see pictures of her here, most likely.
That's it for the intro -- stop by tomorrow about this time for some real commentary.
