About a month ago my father forwarded a post on animal welfare to me by Christian blogger Paul Mayers. I was somewhat surprised to see it, with such posts being few and far between, but very grateful to come across it and connect with Paul soon after. It turned out he also helps administrate a blog for fellow Brit Jason Clark, evangelical and emerging church leader in the UK.
He and Jason had been looking for an opportunity to generate some dialogue on animal welfare on Jason's blog (Jason had previously posted on the subject once as well, after attending a seminar by Andrew Linzey). And they graciously invited me to help host a week's worth of discussion on animals from a Christian perspective, along with friends Stephen Webb and Karen Prior.
The first part of my introduction to the week went up today (July 21), and the rest will be posted tomorrow. I'll be interacting with comments through the week as well. And I'll also be sure to mention it here when Karen and Stephen's submissions are posted later this week, which you won't want to miss. Many thanks to Paul and Jason for the opportunity.
