This is the 100th post here at Story Warren. Tally-ho! I am delighted to be seeing this place –not long ago only a vision– taking shape. Thank you for sharing in this little project on fostering imagination, recapturing wonder, and anticipating the Kingdom.
We are so thankful for those of you who spend a little time here a few times a week. For your comments, emails, and personal encouragements, thanks. It’s been a real pleasure to connect with so many people “out there” who share the vision we have for children. Our heart has always been to be your allies and to connect you with more allies as you seek to foster imagination. We have always aimed to be on your side. Thanks so much for being on ours.
I want to thank our contributors. I have deep respect for them all (even the Brits and Canadians, only 200 years after 1812) and am very appreciative of all their contributions. Thanks, gang. Let’s carry on and, while we’re at it, we might as well keep calm.
We do want to carry on and improve what we’re doing. We have some plans for what’s next in our evolution, but right now we’re still getting the blogging part down. We are interested in hearing what you think! Comment, or drop us a line if you have a suggestion, question, or a recipe for a meal that’s healthy, but tastes like KitKats. Seriously, if you know of allies we should consider featuring, or have anything to say, let us know.
Thanks so much! Please ride along, saddle-pals, as we go for 100 more and beyond, aiming at this sort of stuff….
Play as an Opportunity for Training in the Virtues
Imagination as an Avenue of Kingdom Anticipation
Stories as a Path for Loving the True and Noble
Make Believe as a Way of Training in Faith
Artistry as an Act of Pursuing Beauty
It’s foggy ahead, but there’s light to find and, by which, to see.
We’re on your side.
(Thanks to Julie Witmer for the photo of the SW posse, taken at Hutchmoot a few months ago. And thanks to Andrew and Pete at The Rabbit Room for lots of things. The picture of the sun and fog is one I took on the road in West Virginia near one of my favorite places on earth. Just over this rise in the road is an ordinarily clear view one of the most beautiful sites I know. It was too foggy to see that valley well, but this was lovely enough.)
