The Christian Blogosphere now knows what I’ve known for a few days: GodBlogCon 2005 will be hosted by the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University. The official announcement is up over at Andrew Jackson’s blog. How, you ask, was I privy to such information?


I’ve been organizing the effort at Biola to bring GodBlogCon here at Torrey. Over the next few months I will be planning details for GodBlogCon 2005. This means that until the event occurs (or shortly thereafter), my time is going to be drastically reduced by the new job. I am considering suspending my blogging activities until then, but have not decided yet. Your prayers would be appreciated for both me and my beautiful fiance as I undertake this task. I am daunted, to be sure, but excited.

  1. Aha! Congratulations, Matt! Once again Biola/Torrey takes the lead at the cutting edge (to mix metaphors).


  2. This is a vote for you to continue blogging, even while you serve in a vital role with helping organize and plan for GodBlogCon. It only takes 5 minutes a day to write a blog entry, and it’d be great for you to share what’s happening behind the scenes, transparently, so we can cheer you on and pray along too.


  3. Thanks, DJ (or should I say Mr. Chuang?). I realized that I may be addicted to it–I’ve found myself staying up way later than I should just checking what people are saying about GodBlogCon. It also made me realize that planning was necessarily going to keep me in the world of blogging, and if that happened, then I might as well post.
