Now that we have entered the period of Great Lent, I wanted to send a brief update about the course of this ministry over the next couple of months. Specifically, I wanted to announce two things.
First, the total number of posts on this website alone has reached nearly 12,000. Having so many posts on one website requires a means by which to make them at least fairly easy to find when you are looking for them. For this reason, I am adding subject links to the top of the site, to be able to find each post by topic. They are not currently populated, but this is something I will be working on over the next few months. With this, I will also be deleting anything I no longer want on this site, so there will be a big editing process, in which I will probably delete about a thousand posts. Last month around 300 were already deleted.
Second, four new websites are coming. One of them is exclusively for a book I am translating titled The Salvation of Sinners, written in the 17th century by Monk Agapios of Crete. Another website will also be exclusively for a book I am translating, titled Know Thyself, written by St. Nektarios of Aegina in the early 20th century. These two books I consider essential reading for Orthodox Christians in the 21st century, so I will attempt to translate each one in their entirety and make them available. The third website will be devoted to unique Youth Ministry material and resources for both adults and children. Lastly, I am going to have a website exclusively devoted to my own personal thoughts on various subjects.
As for the subject links, it will be a fairly slowly process to populate them, but do check them often as I do. The new websites will be coming out very soon, and each one will be announced when it is live.
A blessed and spiritually fruitful Great Lent to all,
