Sidebar adjustments.

First, a round of applause for the 100th comment left on this site — by new commenter Molly regarding Desert island hymns:

At my congregation's recent auction, a bidding war ensued when the congregation had the opportunity to bid on banning a hymn for 3 months. Turns out that every bidder wanted to ban the same hymn... "We Would Be One."

Hooray! (A congregation with good sense...) Comments have added a wonderfully interactive quality to the site, and I'm happy to announce that new comments — even on old posts — will appear on the sidebar of the main page as you post them.

In other sidebar developments, I decided that the monthly archives weren't the best way to introduce new readers to the site. So I've added links to a dozen or so key posts instead. Think of them as Philocrites' Selected Works. (Whatever was I thinking a year ago? Now you'll know!) The archives haven't gone away, though: I've updated my Notebook, where you can find a list of everything posted to the blog along with links to the monthly archives and the search engine. Hopefully, this will make it easy for you (and me) to find what I've posted.

A new feature in the Unitarian Universalism links is Google News: Click it, and get the latest news stories with "Unitarian" or "Universalist" in them — minus calendar items, notices about AA meetings, that kind of thing. As always, let me know if you have suggestions or complaints.

Now featuring...

Congratulations to journalist and Unitarian Universalist Dan Kennedy on the publication of his book — and the elevation of his blog for the Boston Phoenix, Media Log, to the ranks of's "Blogs of Note." Wow!

Recent additions to my Unitarian Universalist blog roll:

  • Geologist Geographer Stentor Danielson's Debitage has fresh things to say about Indian casinos and tribal conflict — and he takes up the desert island hymn question!

  • Ms. D gets snarky about the ministry and politics at Degrees of Divinity — where she is more anonymous than fellow blogger-in-ministry Revsparker — but she tries to ask herself some hard questions about war while evading a stalker and pondering furry underthings. And you thought ministry was boring . . .

    Also worth noting:

  • Chutney posts the credo he wrote for his Unitarian Universalist young adult group at My Irony.

  • Joe Perez, aka Soulful Blogger, looks at spirituality from a gay ex-Catholic perspective.

  • And thanks for recent links from Mystic Cowboy, Mycelium Network, and Daniel's Corner.

    Actually, I'm a geographer. Geologists study rocks, whereas geographers study ... well, the discipline has been debating for decades what exactly we study. I personally study how societies interact with the environment (especially wrt wildfire), and the geographers haven't kicked me out yet.

    Anyway, thanks for the link. I've been remiss about adding you to my blogroll, but this will give me a reminder.

    Oops! Thanks for the quick catch — I corrected the post — and I love the colors on your site.

    Ms. D:
