New Issue of The Christendom Review...

..is now online. Essays, poetry, fiction, and remembrances of Marion Montogomery. I'm especially partial to Beth Impson's "Reading the Vision: in search of a reason to run." And Paul Cella, born and raised in Denver, talks about what Tim Tebow the football phenomenon and, more importantly, the man, meant to him personally.

Why, thank you for such kind words, Bill!

This is an excellent issue (as all have been, but y'all keep outdoing yourselves). Paul Cella's is good, and I especially like the one by John Young on technology.

I always enjoy reading well-written memories, too, and I wish I could have known Marion Montgomery. What a blessing he has been in so many people's lives.

I just finished reading Bishop Haverland's reminiscence of the last days of Mr Montgomery, and was struck by the almost identical words used by Mr Montgomery and by Fr Gerard Manley Hopkins in their dying days: "I am so happy." Would that we could all make our transitus with such a palpable awareness of God's grace!

Yes, Beth, people who knew him loved him a lot.

Dylan, I sometimes wonder what my own attitude will be. Probably something like: "Please, please don't throw me in that there hellfire!"

Oh my heart! That's Bishop Mark Haverland, who is the Metropolitan of the denomination I'm officially a member of, the ACC. Mind you, my theology on some Anglican issues (like infant baptism) is not very Anglican, but bless 'em, they confirmed me nonetheless. Bishop Haverland doesn't know me from Adam, but it's still one of those coincidences, because very few people have ever heard of the ACC and most would have no idea what Dylan is talking about by calling him "Bishop Haverland." I hadn't noticed the name yet.

That's pretty neat. Tell the truth, I haven't read Haverland's piece yet, so I guess I should go do that.

I noticed that, too -- "I am so happy." First thing I thought of was Hopkins. The Haverland piece is lovely.
