** Note: I am aiming to get back to blogging again after more than a year away. For a while, I was busy launching a blog in Spanish (www.calidris.wordpress.com), but that ground to a halt too around Christmas time. The plan is to get blogging on both, and also start contributing to www.kerigma.net **
Given that I continue to receive the occasional (very occasional!) comment that some book review or other post was actually helpful to someone, even though the blog has been dormant for so long, I have been encouraged to return to blogging more regularly. My aim will continue to post quotes or reflections on things I have been reading. They will mostly be things that I have found helpful to me. My desire is to know God better and serve Him more faithfully, I am amazed by the person of Jesus Christ and I want the stuff that appears in this blog to point to Him. I finish this re-opening post with the mottoes for blogging I wrote in a post in February 2007:
learning is for living
learning is for loving
To which can be added 1 Corinthians 8.1b:
"Knowledge puffs up while love builds up."
