There are (for me anyway) two truisms for this blog.
- The less time I put into a blog post, the more likely I'm going to get disproportionately large interest.
- The more time I put into a blog post, the more likely I will never finish it.
My recent title-only blog post about a Winchester Profession-based fellowship is proof of the first truism. I jotted out the thought -- in the form of the title -- and scheduled it yet unwritten to post on the Winchester Profession's anniversary. I had the full intent to actually write something but my blogging dried up, and with it my attention to the schedule.
But, with respect to the second truism, I won't labor the thought too much now. Some scattered idea, which will have to do for now.
- The Winchester Profession is at the same time a sufficient, liberal, foundational and historical way to encompass a variety of expressions of Universalism.
- An online search shows it still resonates with people.
- A fellowship or some other free-standing entity organized on a non-geographic basis and dependent on some distributed mode of communication can provide a way to "go deeper" in this tradition, without threatening or agitating those who feel no affection for it.
- Deeper consideration will more likely suggest more practical and useful actionable steps than drawing up a list out of nothing.
- A fellowship, however, need only to be as engaged and organized as its members need, thus can weather times of relative inactivity (should they come) better than, say, a church.
