Discussion Topics


There are several blogs and blog posts dedicated to what it takes to have a good blog. I’ve read through some of them and learned some things but there were also times that I felt discouraged about rebooting the blog. One thing that can be found fairly regularly is that a blog should be focused on very few topics or just one topic. This has been an obstacle for me because I don’t have any one particular area of interest that I want to write about. There are several interests and they can be very different from one another. This has created tension when attempting to plan an editorial calendar that follows a series of thoughts and topics.

Recently the desire to begin writing again and the need for an area of focus finally came together for me. While the posts that I want to write might not be of interest to one particular group of readers, I think that the topics will match the audience because there are other people whose interests span several areas much like mine do. I also hope that I can still offer something on a topic of interest to any particular group of readers. All of my various topics do come into focus because I am writing from my viewpoint and worldview.

Here is a list of topics that will come up on this blog:

  • Jesus Christ
  • Kingdom of God
  • Scripture
  • Ministry
  • College ministry
  • Campus ministry
  • Young Adult ministry
  • Academic ministry
  • Theology
  • Philosophy
  • Ethics
  • Philosophy of Science
  • History of Science
  • Philosophy of Religion
  • Christian Philosophy
  • Theological Philosophy
  • World Religions
  • Comparative Religions
  • Comparative Mythology
  • Anthropology
  • Social Science
  • Natural Science
  • Physics
  • Quantum Physics
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics
  • Cosmology
  • Science and Religion

Some of these are broad topics and some are somewhat specific. I hope that as I spend time writing about them I will be able to explain and illustrate the ways that they are interconnected. My daily work and passion is campus ministry and these topics are viewed through that lens.
