Welcome to Mere Inkling. We have recently updated the look of the site, but all of the Mere Inkling blog content remains the same. Likewise, the columns you have come to expect will continue uninterrupted.

We will actually be expanding the material here over the next few weeks, and some of the new information may be of interest readers of the blog.

Several websites we began nearly twenty years ago, have been languishing without updates for the past several. These will gradually be moved here where they can be more easily maintained. They include historical and literary materials, for the most part.

If you have any trouble navigating the revised site, let me know. We hope you enjoy the fresh presentation.

    Greetings in peace. I arrived here due to my literary interests, and have bookmarked your sight after reading a few thoughtful articles. Though appreciative of certain religious ideas, meditations, graces, mercy, and theologies, there is very little ‘organized religion’ has to offer me; yet due to my upbringing, education (not enough of course), nature, and intense public interaction experienced during my career, others’ ideas and cultures are endlessly fascinating, and while perhaps not endless, so is your blog. Thank you for the nourishing food for thought.

      I’m pleased that you found some of the material here at Mere Inkling thought-provoking and edifying. I hope you will continue to read through the archives, and subscribe to posts as they are written. You are certainly not alone in being disappointed by much of “organized religion.” The problem boils down to the fact that all congregations are made up of imperfect people (just like us). There’s no place on earth that lives us to Jesus’ calling to “be holy as he is holy,” and to truly “love our neighbor as ourself.”

      That said, I encourage you to re-explore participation in a Christian congregation. For the most part, it improves the quality of people’s lives. In the meantime, I’m happy that this humble blog could offer you brief oasis on your pilgrimage. God bless you.


    Hi, I’m Sveta! Thank you so much for creating this awesome Christian, literature-focused blog. I look forward to reading your posts! Blessings in Christ.
