Anabaptist voice from down under
Doug Hynd's weblog 'Subversive Voices' ("Reflections on politics, public policy, theology and culture, informed by the radical tradition of Christian witness") has been added to our roll (see right hand column, toward the foot of the page).
It will show up within an hour of a new post, though not until, The site can be found here if you want to subscribe directly:
http://doug-subversivevoices.blogspot.com/ Doug has been a friend and associate of ours for some time, contributing occasional news stories and features. http://ekklesia.co.uk/search/node/doug+hynd
He has a busy life as a civil servant and also a lecturer at St Mark's National Theological Centre in Canberra, Australia. He is Vice President of the Anabaptist Association of Australia and New Zealand (AAANZ), and signatory to a radical biblical statement on Christian confession in today's complex and divided world: http://www.anabaptistnetwork.com/node/366
In due course we hope that Doug will be contributing directly to this blog, along with others. We are also going to expand the aggregator. The whole thing has been in the 'pending tray' for rather too long, and will be carried out alongside an wider overhaul carried out by the estimable Joe Baker from Eleutheria.
While I'm here can I also recommend: Jane Stranz (Of life, laughter and liturgy): http://stranzblog.blogspot.com/ , New Testament professor Deirdre Good: http://notbeingasausage.blogspot.com/ , Maggi Dawn (Robinson College, Cambridge): http://maggidawn.typepad.com/maggidawn/blog_index.html , Johan Maurer (USA and Russia): http://johanpdx.blogspot.com/ , the Prodigal Kiwis: http://prodigal.typepad.com/ , and of course Jim Wallis's God's Politics: http://blog.beliefnet.com/godspolitics/
They all combine a combination of the thoughtful and the inspirational, the professional and the personal.
