Changes

This morning I’m going to pull a play from the NPR and PBS play-book. You know, the maddening times you turn them on and you get the money drive asking you to call or log in and help fund programming? Don’t worry, I’m not asking for money – but I do want to let you know about some changes that are on the way. 

Let me start with a big thank you to bloggers and readers of the 12. We appreciate the time and support you give to make this blog successful. Most of you know that this blog is connected with the journal Perspectives – a joint venture of the Reformed institutions of higher education. Sometime this fall Perspectives will be changing its website. We will no longer be located on the RCA website; we will be adding the online journal content to this squarespace site to create a more update to date online presence. The blog will stay the same, but it will now be part of a new Perspectives web site built on squarespace. Trying to keep up with the changes technology and the web have brought to publishing is a crazy, but worthwhile, endeavor. Our hope is that a new online format will make it easier for current readers of Perspectives to access articles, while at the same time bring in new readers who prefer electronic platforms. So keep your eyes peeled for these changes – we’ll keep you posted on these developments.

We’re always looking for people write for Perspectives. If you have an idea for an article or essay, or if you know someone who has written something interesting, please let us know – we’d love to hear from you. 

Have a wonderful 4th of July holiday! (If you’re Canadian – a belated and happy Canada Day.)
