A Word of Thanks

This post is simply a quick word of thanks to those who read this blog. I am very thankful that you stop by and read what I post. I am also thankful when you post comments, even comments that challenge what I wrote. If you'd like to see certain topics discussed, remember that you can easily obtain my e-mail address through my blogger profile. Thanks again for reading this blog. May God use it to your edification (if you are a believer) and to your conversion (if you are not).

Only to the Glory of God,

-TurretinFan

How about you open the comments section and let this be more of a dialogue?

Turretinfan said...

Nah. It's open enough, as it is. There's even an open forum for those who want that, and very few people have taken advantage of that option.

Peter Pike said...

As long as this isn't a "Thank you for being my readers" farewell post....

Turretinfan said...

No ... not a farewell post. In fact, I presently have over 250 draft blog posts in various stages of completion.

Thats what I'm talking about!!! And as far request, how about revealing your secret identity? :|

Turretinfan said...

Zaphon: Thanks for your kind words!

LURaB: :-)

250!

Yumpin' Yimminy!

It's all I can do to put up something every few days or so, and most of the time it's not particularly controversial. I've had to resort to reproducing combox comments lately, since that's where I end up doing most of my thinking and writing.

So I thank you in return, TF, for such an interesting and challenging blog. It's a good source of rabbit-trail material for my own blog! ;-)

Alex said...

It's about as open as political discourse in Chairman Mao's China. What benefit is there in commenting on another blog when the comment pertains to a post on this blog?

Turretinfan said...

What benefit (you might just as well ask) is there in commenting in the comment box when you'd like to deface the blog entry itself! (I'm thankful that blog comments don't operate like Google Wave - at least not yet.) It is what it is, Alex. Some folks use the comment box to insult, inflame, etc. Some provide challenging and interesting thoughts. Some post tangentially related items, and a few spam.

I am glad to have a place to go and be challenged and challenge.

You are welcome!

I'm very thankful for your blog, TF. I frequent only 3 blogs...yours, Triablogue, and the Bayly Blog.

Turretinfan said...

Thanks! I'm flattered to be on that list.

TF,

I don't comment often, but I read frequently. I appreciate your thoroughness and usual charity. Keep up the good work.

Blessings,

thanks Turr8in,

I meant to thank you for your last post on David's son. Such clarity is always necessary. I remember being once hammered as "heartless" for also pointing out that the text hardly supports the weight put upon it by many.

popped into #pros to say as much to you but you had absconded so will do so here!

blessings!

No, thank *you* TF for the thoughtful essays. I always find this blog to be a good read and thoughtfully argued. Some of the patristics material is especially fascinating for those of us not particularly versed in the area. Thanks!

Paijo Budi said...

Thank you TF. I benefit so much from your blob. Wish it were in Bahasa Indonesia. We need resources in Indonesia. We are attacked from every side here in terms of faith.

God bless you richly.

In Christ

Ooops.. I am sorry! I should have written "I benefit so much from your blog" not "I benefit so much from your blob"
