Letters home from the Lazy Disciple and the Humbly Presumptuous...
Tuesday, December 05, 2006
I am not terribly interested in beginning with a major, substantive post. I have spent the past hour or so catching up on my blog reading. I was and am intrigued by some of the remarks R.R. Reno made regarding the lack of spiritual seriousness in First Things. My initial reaction is to say that the "crisis of confidence" diagnosis is not a very good one. It may be that the substance of his diagnosis is good, and I am distracted by the unfortunate terminology. Otherwise, I might be missing the interpretation and expansion of our understanding of a crisis of confidence. Sloth has always struck me as a main reason for spiritual frivol: especially systematic spiritual frivol.
We love disagreeing, and we would love to disagree with you, but we can only disagree with you if you write to us at:
Of course, there are other reasons for writing to us besides disagreement. Have something you want me to see or maybe treat on the blog? Send it in. Appreciate all the fine work we're doing? Let us know.
A caveat to potential stalkers: writing e-mails in one's own blood is an extremely messy and inefficient business.
A caveat to all would-be correspondents: If you do write, we can publish it. That does not mean we will, though. We are reasonable men. If you want anonymity, just ask for it, and you shall receive it. Just remember: sign with your real name. The first thing we do is check for a real name. We delete all unsigned e-mails.
