Some Mentions Elsewhere
You know, once in a while I come across what other people are saying about nakedpastor. It is a hilarious experience for me when I'm blog-browsing and come across one of my cartoons or something else in another blog. Sometimes it just blows my mind. Here are a couple for instances:Shards of Consciousness, in which he says:
He has built a community from disparate individuals who treat each other with respect and kindness, even when they disagree.In actual fact, I don't feel as though I've built anything at all, except maybe a blog. Those attracted to it are diverse, and we've found a strange kind of unity here. Another one is Persecuted Church, in which he says:
I enjoy his cartoons especially. They often straight for the jugular, making a significant point about the Christian life while making you laugh at the same time; which is what good humour should do.In actual fact, I'm just thinking and drawing out loud, not attempting to slit any jugulars or make a significant point. But I'm glad they do accomplish these for some! Then, finally, there's this one which completely humbled me, from A Load of Bright, in which he says:
Naked Pastor is, at the time of writing, the only theistic blog I link to. In my blogroll policy I state that I will link to a theistic blog only if I think that a positive, open minded approach to atheism is encouraged there. Naked Pastor amply meets that requirement. Although, for obvious reasons, I disagree with the majority of what is said, I find the writing and artwork to be witty and clever, and the acceptance of criticism refreshingly forthcoming.In actual fact, I'm humbled and thrilled to be able to participate in the quality level of dialogue that has been happening between me, my readers, and the excellent atheist bloggers. It is a pleasure as well as an incredible learning experience. I've been blogging now for just over a year. I started as davidhayward.ca, then switched to churchpundit.com, then finally to nakedpastor. Nakedpastor is by far the better name, although my website, because of the "naked" part, is banned in some countries, in all schools and most businesses. Oh well. There's a cost to everything! Thanks everyone, and stay tuned for more! The fine art photograph is the creation of my friend Mark Hemmings. It reminds me of a dream.
