about the blog
Thanks for checking out not one sparrow's blog! While the rest of the site has core content related to not one sparrow’s mission and makeup, along with general issues we care about, the blog is meant to be an outlet for more specific concerns and interests.
not one sparrow updates and events will be posted (including our newsletter), along with commentary on animal advocacy news and notes coming from both a mainstream and Christian perspective. There will be pointers to issues affecting companion, farm, and wild animals, and tips on how we can respond to these needs including adjusting our consumption habits. But along with the heavier stuff there will be posts to pique your curiosity and hopefully make you smile (feel-good), as well as generally help foster an appreciation for animals and the way they operate.
The blog represents a range of interaction with the animal welfare discussion and some of the questions and implications coming out of it. Some of the posts or comments may even take you a bit past your comfort level, but please know we don't expect anyone to be interested in or agree with everything that’s posted. But we do hope it’ll be a safe place to keep a dialogue open, and also challenge all of our perspectives from time to time.
Speaking of dialogue, we definitely hope you'll be part of it, and please see our comment policy for more. Should you identify with not one sparrow's mission and community, you're even welcome to suggest an idea for a post of your own! Otherwise, please feel free to send a note if you run into anything you'd like to ask about more personally, or have an item of interest you'd like to pass along. We can't post on everything (there’s an awful lot to take in), but I (Ben) am grateful to know more of what's out there and certainly am open to interacting personally.
By the way, if you'd ever like to cross-post or otherwise use any of not one sparrow's own posts, we're definitely honored, and even encourage you to do so! Please just send a note with a brief description of where you'd like to cross-post an entry, or how you'd like to use it, and we can almost guarantee it'll be fine (copyright reserved). We'll get back to you right away, and many thanks for your interest.
