Fear to Speak, Courage to Publish: Faith for OTV

I don’t often write directly about what “faith” means to me on the page, but after a month of inspiring work by artists at Open Thought Vortex, I decided to dive right in.

It’s frightening–talking about religion. Especially when you had one, and now you have none. I hope you’ll take a look at my editor’s letter over there, and then peruse last month’s features to find out what “faith” means to many others.

Read my admission on Open Thought Vortex.

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    You wouldn’t expect a lemonade manufacturer to offer you the ‘drink’ with out a
    certain ingredient for 20p and ‘optional’ sugar for 1 on the next counter (to quote both a really
    old video game Lemons, with an old cartoon about rip-offs through the Sunday Times).

    Of particular note is the fact that modern intranets will frequently
    include not simply content and document management systems, but in addition business processes,
    project-based and purchasers data – that were previously only obtainable from
    specialist vendors that required significant investment
    and created islands of information.
