The End Of the Internet Monk
Our sites are about the same age…almost twenty years…which is ancient in internet years.
For the IM it’s been an astounding run of excellent, thoughtful writing and content that blessed people who were in theological and spiritual transition.
Unlike many of the churches it critiqued, it survived the death of its founder, Michael Spencer.
One of my great regrets is that Spencer and I did not get on well…I no longer remember why, but I assume it was because of some foolishness on my part.
Chaplain Mike has provided a steady hand and clear voice since Spencer’s departure.
I did not read there regularly, but often, and the site made many appearances on the Linkathon!.
I will miss just knowing it was there…it seemed to me a place of honesty and sanity when there is very little of either online.
I salute Chaplain Mike and the other writers for carrying on with excellence…and knowing when (and how) to finish well.
May God richly reward all involved for what they’ve given to us.
