Restarting Blogging

Walking the Camino de Santiago

It has been a very fruitful break from blogging. And I return to blogging with energy

  • for mission and ministry on the web
  • for quality liturgy and worship
  • for healthy spirituality

Please share with your friends and internet social circles that this site will be getting new material once again.

Some of the focuses on this site, in the near future, will be

  • Completing the work I have been doing on contemporary reworking and reflections on collect prayers
  • Giving the social and cultural backgrounds to the ecumenically-shared Sunday gospel reading
  • I walked the Camino, the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, and I will blog through my experience and reflections on that
  • I want to make better links to other quality sites – if you, your community or parish, have a good website or blog, do put a link from your site to this website, and I will be doing similarly – providing you an opportunity to tell people here about your site, so that this site is providing people with ideas, reflections, and a network of resources
  • I intend to complete rebuilding the part of the site that is not yet in WordPress format
  • I will be pointing to helpful posts and series, put up on this site some time back, that continue to be of value. One of the positive surprises of having a break from blogging was to find that the site continued to be visited. I expected visiting to drop back quickly and very steeply. Neither was the case. Sure, while blogging there can regularly be a couple of thousand visitors a day, but, without new posts, still eight hundred or so visitors arrived at the site daily. And did not just leave after visiting one page
  • I will be investigating better use of social media platforms: facebook (do “like” that page if you haven’t already), pinterest, and maybe Instagram, and even consider Google+
  • There will be New Zealand and Anglican resources and reflections*, as well as international and ecumenical ones

If there is anything not working on this site as it should, please let me know. Let us continue to pray for each other, and for all who gather in the community around this site.

[*Whilst in the NZ Anglican lectionary this week is indicated as Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori – Maori Language Week, and I would hope at least some Te Reo Maori is used in many/most/all services, it is actually next week that is Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori]

    Welcome back! I will be glad to see more posting from you, and am glad for the time away that you have been able to enjoy.

  2. Hooray! I have sorely missed you Padre. You extended so far beyond the go slow season that I was beginning to worry. I had to look occasionally on Peter’s webpage because if something had happened I would think that he would have posted about it.

    It’s great that you are back online. Blessings to you and yours.

    Hi Bosco: Welcome back!

    Hi David: I was under oath not to reveal what a good time Bosco was having while not blogging 🙂

  4. Thank you for your excellent Liturgy blog. A very useful resource that I have been recommending.
    Glad to see it’s back in action again.

    Yay! I have been visiting the site occasionally to find resources but it is lovely that you are back. I look forward to hearing about your walk on the Camino.

  6. Welcome back from the Pilgrimage, Bosco and Helen. Diana and I have, too, just returned from our 6 weeks break in Europe, ready for the fray. By the way you didn’t trip over + Kelvin, Dunelm, on the way to/from Santiago, did you? I understand he might be located thereabouts.

    1. Welcome back to you also, Fr Ron. I know Kelvin is walking the Camino. Prayers for all, especially pilgrims, on today, feast day of St James. Blessings.
