Gleaners Chapel

Light in Darkness

Welcome! Nowadays, I post to my new blog at Gleaners Chapel, a successor to my old Renegade Catholic blog.

But back before there were blogs, I wrote essays and posted them on my various websites. Some still have possibly interesting, even useful content, and I occasionally reference them in my current writings, and so they are posted here.

This site combines my archives of essays from my former sites, and, and a few from the now-retired, too. Some selected material will be reposted with updates to the new site before these pages finally go to the great bit bin in the sky. I do apologize for the ancient format but the pristine content from the dawn of the web is what it is. Enjoy it while it lasts!
