Introducing our latest AIIA initiative

Welcome to our new blog! 
I really hope that you’ll “follow” along by subscribing with your email address at right. Or bookmark this page and check in often.

The pace of life slows during the winter months here in north central Maine. So I try to catch up on my backlog of unread books.

I just finished reading Humble Apologetics by John G. Stackhouse, Jr. Here’s a notable excerpt: “The heart of the Christian religion is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and it is this to which [Christian] apologists hope to point their neighbors.”

That’s certainly a major purpose in my life. So it will be a major purpose of this blog.

I also intend to keep you up-to-date between bimonthly issues of our thoughtletter. A lot can happen in two months.

Some blogs will be brief and others longer. The blogs will be posted on no regular basis. I’ll write when I have something to say, not just because of some arbitrary deadline.

As long as it works, we’ll allow response (below). So drop us a comment if you choose.

God’s best to you until next time.

    Received your Proclamation and read about Mary’s health issues. I have been praying regularly about your upcoming sabbatical; I’m sure this is not what you had in mind. Praying for you both during this season. May our Lord hear and answer our prayers for full recovery.
    Love in Christ

    I see that Dr. Stackhouse works at Crandall Univ. in New Brunswick. Perhaps he could be invited to speak in Maine by AIIA. From his bio page: “Formerly a professor of European history at Northwestern College in Iowa, a professor of religion at the University of Manitoba, and the Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College (University of British Columbia), he now serves Crandall University in Moncton, New Brunswick, as the Samuel J. Mikolaski Professor of Religious Studies and Dean of Faculty Development.”

    Just got my “Proclamation” down here in Connecticut.

    Best of luck to Mary!

    Will be thinking of both you and Mary from Charlotte. Plan on having lobster for me this summer since I won’t be getting any myself! Prayers to both! Wish I could be Mary’s nurse too
