I'm in a bit of a blogging slump these days. I remain determined to avoid any discussion here about the current presidential race (at least until it's over). That takes a lot of material off the table.
Some of my favorite writers are certainly not suffering through any slump. For starters, I enthusiastically recommend the two posts below:
Fr. Stephen Freeman posts his thoughts on "The Orthodox Church and Personal Salvation," using a recent Franklin Graham Crusade to Ukraine as a springboard, here.
And over at Second Terrace, here, I find one of the best essays I've read on the nature of true conservatism.
On Memorial Day, I will be leaving to do a bit of traveling. When I return on June 17th, I'm sure I'll have much to discuss.
