The main aim of this blog is to interpret the Christian Order in the light of current affairs, philosophy, literature and the arts -- and vice versa. So it's about ideas. Social, political and religious comment. Links, notes on people, places, events, books, movies etc.
And mainly a place where I can post half-baked ideas in the hope that other people, or the passing of time, will help me to bake them.

I will not wish everyone a "Happy New Year", as that may be offensive to some, and it is decidedly religiously insensitive and politically INcorrect.
I could, of course,
wish the pagans a happy Janus day.
The Christians a Happy Circumcision and St Basil's Day
And the secularists a Happy New Year
But wishing everyone a "Happy New Year" is showing religious prejudice and insensitivity.
