Four Years of Conciliar Post
This past weekend, Conciliar Post celebrated its fourth year of promoting dialogue across Christian traditions. In an era of increased incivility, tribalism, and negativity, the Conciliar Post community remains committed to thoughtful and charitable dialogue, even—especially—when it comes to controversial issues.
During the past year, our writers have tackled such issues as divine immutability and impassibility, the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, Trump and false prophecy, barrenness, post-secularism, doubt, the Passion, the growth of non-denominationalism, the death of God, matchmaking, theology in the academy, R.C. Sproul, and solitude (among many, many others).
We remain committed to learning from each other—through Round Tables and Dialogues—and from the Great Tradition of the faith that unites us.
Thank you for journeying with us over the past four years. We are extremely grateful for the ever-growing Conciliar Post community, both on this site and on social media. Two years ago, Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Winter wrote the following:
Even as discourse across the internet becomes more and more chaotic, fragmented, and polarizing, it is a comfort to see in Conciliar Post a safe harbor, a place of respite, an intentional community where the old adage “think before you speak” is observed.
I believe these words continue to ring true today; the shape of our world can easily lead to despair or outrage. At Conciliar Post, however, we rally around St. Paul’s admonition: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
We look forward to many more years of conversation and encouragement as together we seek God and promote civil discourse in an uncivil world. Thank you for joining us—and may God be glorified through our continued journey together.
