Blogopticon 09 29 09: Parchment and Pen, and Financial Need

Yes, the Blogopticon has only just sprung into existence, meaning it has not had much opportunity to establish a proper and felicitous identity and rhythm.  I should probably link to some fantastic blog entry somewhere.

But I’m not going to.  I’ve gotten to know Michael Patton a little bit; he runs Reclaiming the Mind Ministries, which operates The Theology Program, which has given excellent education to thousands after thousands of people who would not otherwise be able to receive a theological education.  Reclaiming the Mind also operates the lovely Parchment and Pen blog, and a regular podcast on matters ecclesial and theological.

Well, today Reclaiming the Mind Ministries finds itself in need.  So here is the post, with the appropriate link:

You know how much I hate to use the blog to ask for funding, but I must. . . I will keep it short and to the point.

Reclaiming the Mind Ministries is in immediate need of $20,000. We got behind this summer and everything is due by tomorrow. This need is very serious.

For those of you who don’t know, Parchment and Pen is the blog of Reclaiming the Mind Ministries, a 501c3 not-for-profit ministry devoted to theological education.

You can donate here.

If you can, help them out.  They do important work, and they do it surpassingly well.
