Sunshine and Starlight on My Face Again

“There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist… most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by the multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many […]

Redesign. On a Whim.

A redesign. It started a week ago when at last I faced facts. The time had come to add social media icons to this site. Everywhere I looked there were articles on how easy it was to add a Google+ button. But more to the point, I should have done this some time ago for Facebook and Twitter.

To Communicate with Grace

Five years ago, when listening to a sermon on music as a calling, I realized that if there truly are callings, then the Web is such for me. It was one of those moments of instant recognition, but more than that, it’s withstood a test of time. “How can the web be a calling?” I […]

Caught the Blogging Bug

Writing this blog changed me. It turned out that even though my main goal wasn’t blogging itself, nonetheless I loved it. The thing was, I didn’t have enough time. Various life forces converged. In particular, my job kicked into high gear. But there was a part of me that pined away, wanting to blog. Then […]

To Change Tempo With Grace

As some of you have noticed, I haven’t updated Faith and Web in several weeks. What’s worse, I’ve barely kept up with other blogs. Worst of all, I haven’t even been to church. Put simply, there hasn’t been time. This morning, however, I was back in our gorgeous sanctuary. It’s a new day. And what […]


I’d been intending to post this past week, but between a couple of major projects, illness in my family, and the heat, haven’t had the time. Now I have another big project, so it will be two to three weeks before I have a chance to blog again. Meanwhile, I’ll be thinking of you, gathering […]

The Impact of Blogging

I’m starting to learn there are blog-charged days — days where even if you’re not blogging, the ripple effect of your words is quite clear. Today was one of those. First off, I heard from Vincent Flanders of Web Pages That Suck. He’d noticed my mention of him. Holy Toledo! In my web diva universe, […]

Guest Blogger Dean Goddette

I am delighted to introduce Dean Goddette, who will be guest posting on Faith and Web. Dean is webmaster at Chalice Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Escondido, California. We’ve never met, but he came to my attention first blogging about technology and churches at Share the knowledge. Then when I saw what he’d done with the […]

Blog Underpinnings Improved (or So I Hope)

The menu on the right of this blog was driving me nuts. I like a menu that screams menu – not a vague, dreamy-looking list. So I took the time to clean it up and do a bit of other blog housekeeping. Here’s what else is new and different: A Best Posts page – arranging […] Daily Blog Postings

For a while I’ve been toying with the idea of using the experimental blog posting feature, and yesterday I did the deed. So a little after midnight, when I was fast asleep, the bookmarks I’d made yesterday were posted on this blog. In theory, from henceforth this should happen every day when I link […]
