How to Use the actstwosix (axtwosix.blogspot.com) Site
Welcome to actstwosix, the blogsite of Chris Huff
Thanks for stopping by. There is a little bit of everything here. The feature of this site is my 10-part series, entitled "Why I Stayed", which lays out the reasons why I chose to stay in the Episcopal Church (TEC), while many of my colleagues chose to follow Mark Lawrence and go it alone. These can be found under the category on the side bar entitled "Chris' Reflections". I invite comment and conversation. An easier way to find all ten parts is to click on "Why I Stayed" (In the Episcopal Church label near the top of the right hand column on the main page.
Categories, or Labels
Categories are "Chris' Reflections", "News and Commentary", "Devotions", "Guest Authors", "Christ and Culture", "Rants" and "Why I Stayed". Good stuff in each. "News and Commentary" has interesting news concerning the church at large and the world, and does not necessarily reflect my views.
There is a side bar feature entitled "Popular Posts", which lists the most read posts for convenient perusing.
The pages in the site are "How to Use This Blog", "About Chris Huff" (more expanded info about me than show up on my blogspot profile), "Culture Wars" and "Home". "Home" lists posts chronologically by most recent, regardless of category. "Culture Wars" contains an important piece on how the church should be approaching and engaging culture and society, perhaps where we, the church, make our most serious blunders.
The side bar also gives a way to be a follower of mine, and also has a place to sign up for email notification of new posts.
The links list is not large, because Episcopal Cafe, alone, contains within it a host of links to blogs and websites and newsfeeds so great that one can literally get lost there!
Suggestions are welcome, including your ideas on how I can improve this site, corrections of content or grammar, etc. Please make those suggestions as a comment on this page.
What I Hope to Accomplish
My desire is that you become informed, experience God's love, listen to reason from me, a priest of 25 years, exclusively lived out in this diocese (South Carolina). I want everyone to engage in conversation with as little judgment as possible, regardless of theological and ecclesiological stance. It is safe to comment here, I promise. I can't promise that you won't encounter high emotion from time to time in people's comments, but I promise to moderate for optimal dignity and respect, as Jesus would have us treat one another in love.
