What I’m up to

I am aware that I haven’t blogged since June and am grateful to still have traffic nonetheless. Thank you one and all! But I thought I should explain what I’m currently up to. Basically I am head down writing the first of a series of hopefully four novels – a mixture of historical fiction and fantasy focusing on the four windows or conduits that I traced in my research as set out in Church, Gospel and Empire: How the Politics of Sovereignty Impregnated the West and the more accessible The Fall of the Church. The plan is to offer another way into the good news of the politics of love and how the church and its message became increasingly subsumed by sovereignty and empire, particularly in the West, and to point the way ahead. This is quite some task and requires time and focus. Hence my failure to blog more frequently.

However there are other places to keep up with me for those who would like to. I post regularly on Twitter https://twitter.com/roghaydonmitch?lang=en and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/rogerhaydon.mitchell, and various published articles and papers can be found on my Academia site https://wtctheology.academia.edu/RogerHaydonMitchell. Exciting research and writing that continues to explain, develop and apply kenarchy can be found in the first two volumes of The Kenarchy Journal http://www.kenarchy.org of which I am the lead editor. Volume Three is due to be published by the end of this year.

I will not be stopping blogging altogether, and from time to time I will reblog material from other sites, such as Clarion https://www.clarion-journal.com/clarion_journal_of_spirit/ and Perspectives https://3generations.eu/posts/, where kindred spirits to mine locate!

  1. Hi Rog

    Great to hear your news; that’s quite a challenge you’ve given yourself! I hope you’re finding the creative flow to aid you on your way.

    I’m in process of writing again too alongside a couple of other work projects. I’ve also picked up far too many books and trying to be disciplined to actually read them! I’m just finishing one by the Pope “Let us Dream” – never thought I’d be doing that! It’s very good (imho) – written since Covid appeared, looking at how a better future could be found. I’m on the last part now (not a huge book) and was really struck by what he was saying in the context of initiatives like the Poverty Truth Commission.

    Anyway, won’t prolong this. I hope you and Sue remain really well and that it won’t be too far distant before seeing you again.

    Much love to you both
