Time for a refresh and a big thank you!

God and Politics in the UK is now just about four months old and over this time things have grown a lot quicker than I expected.  I’ve realised some of the limitations of the WordPress theme I’m using and I’ve also got some ideas for new features that will need a bit of time to put together.  As a result of this I’ve decided to take a short break from adding posts to the site to give me time to implement these changes.  The plan is to have the site relaunched in two weeks on Monday the 16th of April.  I’ll still be keeping an eye on the comments and be on Twitter during this time.  I hope you’re not too disappointed, but hopefully it will be worth it!

Now seems to be a good time to say a very big thank you for taking the time to read this blog.  It still amazes me that people actually are interested in what I’m writing, but I’m really pleased with the level of interest it’s received.

I’d like to thank a few people in particular who have helped me along the way so far.  Thanks to Stuart James at eChurch, Peter Kirk at Gentle Wisdom, Archbishop Cranmer, David Keen at Opinionated Vicar and Richard Barker at Richard’s Watch for the generous support in promoting the site.  Thanks to Fay and Your Mission who have been my top retweeters on Twitter, Graham Goldsmith for the guest articles and being my top commenter along with efgh.  Finally thanks to Mike Keen and Tracy Watson-Brown who have been following me from the very first day.

I’m excited to see where things are going to go in the future.  The idea for this came through spending time with God and it feels very much that He is in this.  Faith and politics continue to make the headlines and the church needs to be inspired to present God’s perspective on society and do what it can to make this country a better place.  Thanks again for coming on the journey with me.

Back soon!

  1. Thanks for the link.

    If one of your issues with Twenty Eleven is that you don’t see sidebars on individual posts, try Add Sidebar Support in Posts for the Twenty Eleven Theme.

  2. Looking forward to the relaunch. Faith and politics do go together whatever certain politicians and even some faith leaders may say. Keep up the good work!

  3. My hat’s off to you Gillan for your painstaking research, eloquence and most noble purpose. Agree 100% wiith the sentiments of your parting para. Looking forward to the relaunch. Be especially blessed and refreshed this Resurrection Sunday.

  4. Thank you Richard. May God bless you too. I love this time of year. So much to remember and recieve from Christ.

  5. It’s a super bit of work, and your commitment to high level comment is fab. I really value your round-ups, and the fact that though I can tell were you are coming from, your content is never anything but polite and kind. Wish I had half your ability to apply ourself to the job in hand! Happy easter!
