A moment to consider the blog

I set out to record some thoughts on this blog. Especially those thoughts that consider life today in the perspective of eternity.

Just as I am wondering if this is a good use of time, a technical aspect of the blog world came my way with food for thought. The blogging system tells me that 230 different people have looked at ChristChurchCurate in February. It doesn't tell me who they are, but where they live, and how they got to the blog.

The way most people got here was by searching my name, Christ Church NYC and the following phrases: "Richard Wilbur Barred Owl" and "Burgermeister Meisterburger". I find that wonderful.

So, I'll keep this going a few more months and then check in again. Until then, hello to the readers, mainly New Yorkers, but also to whoever you are in Singapore, England, Germany, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates and Japan!

Come to think of it, that's kind of a picture of heaven: every tribe, tongue and nation will be gathered around the throne of God (singing, not surfing the internet).

A moment of self-reflection: click on the title of this post to see a few seconds on the death of newspapers, to which I am no doubt contributing, reading only the newspaper on the weekends and getting news from the internet the rest of the week...
