The first time I visited in , I just wanted to see what was happening. I walked around checking out the People’s Library, the medical tent, the kitchen set up, the media center – and I started informally i those who were holding signs and looked approachable – even a mother and her two (blindfolded) daughters in . The second time I visited I went to try to work with the Protest Chaplains – but failed to connect with them. I decided to try my luck at holding up a sign, and that led to an interview with the Christian Post – and then the next day (because of the article) with my participation in a B.B.C. discussion.
The many interviews and discussions at Zuccotti Park, and these early “tests” forced me to begin to crystallize my convictions. Since that time I’ve vacillated between commitment to and obsession with the movement in it’s changing forms. I’m here to spread the word, and especially to interest and challenge and their pastors. I pick this group because it’s what I know, and because, at least when it comes to the pastors, they are conspicuous by their absence. I hope you’ll benefit from my musings and the resources I hope to make available here.
In my blog entries I will attempt to address most of the many key questions at some length, and do this, to the best of my ability from a Christian perspective. I hope that my tone will always be irenic. I’ll also be making available an extensive library of online articles and various valuable websites.
I hope you’ll find something useful here, sign up to “follow” the blog (which means you’ll automatically be notified when I post something new), and tell a friend.
