This post is a bit different than what you might be used to finding on here. For starters, this will be my final post for 2014. Ever since I started this site back in April of this year, I have toyed with several possible directions to take my writing. I’ve experimented with different angles and perspectives in an attempt to develop my ‘voice’ as a blogger. Looking forward into 2015, I think you will find more posts related to what I have written recently.
As a Christian, my faith plays a significant role in my life. Faith affects the decisions I make for myself and with my wife concerning our family, how I approach friendships and other acquaintances, even in how I exist as a productive member of society. I think that everyone who writes with strong religious convictions determines at a certain point whether their work will take on a more theological/philosophical approach or perhaps a more pastoral/popular audience direction. Composing pieces that serve primarily catechetical purposes is when my writing feels most natural. Tackling everyday issues and current events through the lens of Church teaching will find itself as the focal point of my blogging from this point onward. I am not a blogging expert, in many ways I am still new to all of this.
With that said, here’s what you can expect from RobertBarbry.com in 2015:
- 2-3 posts per week
- an active/updated speaking schedule (as dates become available)
- weekly podcasts (aiming to begin by Summer 2015)
- chapter excerpts from my first book (currently in-progress)
