New Blog

Hey all you happy readers!
Don't let the title worry you. I still intend to write more here! ...Eventually...

Nevertheless, at the prompting of my wife and a good friend, I've started up a new side venture that's going to be a bit more personal, a bit less structured, and more designed to answer readers' questions and comments in a pastoral and non-debative style. I've titled it after the Dominican motto of "Contemplare et contemplata allis tradere", and you can find it at

In the past, here, I've had a few people say that during the dialogues in certain comment sections to my posts, I've engaged in "theological wranglings" and debating that has perhaps intimidated and chased away some readers. That's the kind of thing that will not be going on at the new blog, and so those readers who appreciate the more devotional aspects of Barque of Peter will probably feel much more at home at Contemplare et contemplata allis tradere. Those who enjoy the more technical, apologetical, "wrangling" that happens here, well, that will still go on here. But not there.

So yeah, that's the update. Hope to see you here--and there!

God bless
