Support A Pastor's Notebook

I don't know how to say this, except plainly. We're in trouble. It's not even that man: it's his administration, and his cronies, and his movement, and the irresponsible power-happy conservative establishment that's all too happy to enable the shitshow. It is, most of all, the constant temptation to forget our own human dignity. We need confidence, and an understanding of what we can do with the power that we have. We need imagination, courage, and reassurance. We need above all else an irresponsible hope, a joy like an avenging fire capable of laying waste to all that confronts it, and a peace that passes understanding. Somebody's got to articulate this. I've got a few things planned for that job:
  1. A multi-part series on the role of the church and individual believers (or non-) in the new age.
  2. More writing on Mary and other saints.
  3. Exploration of scripture and theology.
  4. Commentary on the intersection of religion and politics, published here and elsewhere.
  5. Prayers, nuttery, and inappropriate humor.
Financial support isn't strictly speaking essential to accomplishing this mission—I've got a day jobe—but it sures makes things go easier. So please, consider if you can making a contribution. At the moment, there are three ways you can help me out:
  1. Send a one-time payment through PayPal. (Yeah, I know.)
  2. Sign up to be a sustaining monthly supporter at Patreon.
  3. Buy me a book!
I'll think of more ways in the future. I'll try not to be obnoxious about it, though. In the meantime, thank you so much for your support, even if it's just saying a prayer on our behalf. + + +
