“4) How might we aggregate the “best of the Bloggernacle” into a centralized resource that provides more directed support to those in need?” Some content really does deserve to be aggregated somewhere permanent and made easily searchable. Not sure how/where, but I totally agree.
“5) Most importantly, how do we support positive growth in the institutional church in ways that do not simultaneously weaken this incredible force for good in the world?” I’m not sure quite how the b’nacle and the institutional church work together.

Jana — Thanks so much for writing. I’m very happy for you and your husband. I hope we can meet someday soon. Come visit in Logan!]]>

I’m banking on enjoying the practice of Psychotherapy once I’m done.
Wish me luck!]]>
And good luck as you start into your new program at Utah State. I absolutely loved school from kindergarten through law school, but the thought of “going back” makes me want curl up in a corner and reach for my blankey. So, I admire you (and anyone else) for starting a new degree. All the best!]]>
