This post will be mainly devoted to pointing out recent enhancements to my sidebar.
First, the sidebar no longer lists the ten most recent posts, which it used to do no matter how lame the most recent posts were. Now it lists whatever posts I've decided I like the best (and it does so whether or not they're recent).
Second, I've added some new links:
- Friendly Kwakersaur Scripture Study
- Quakers In the News
- Some Principles of the Elect People of God in Scorn Called Quakers
The Quakers In the News blog is especially interesting and quite different from any of the others I link to. It gives us a way to see ourselves as the media sees us. The creator of this blog, who I know but won't mention by name, since he doesn't, is doing Friends a real service by keeping up with and sharing this information. One article he lists deals with an agreement by Friends Hospital in Philadelphia to form a "partnership" with a big health care chain. Though the hospital board presents this as a good thing, my own instinct (based on my experience with the healthcare "industry") is to doubt it. Incidentally, this hospital was recently mentioned on Ruthie-Annie's blog because of its historic role as a pioneer in humane treatment of mentally ill people.
The third change in my blog is to add a page hit counter and a feature that should let me (or you) look up what pages have been linking to the blog. This is intended to satisfy my curiosity. Potentially it could also stoke my ego and flatter my narcissism, but the results thus far tend more to the humbling than the exalting.
Hope you enjoy the blog and its changes.
