I hope you have had a chance to check out the new site and learn more about Current. (Start by clicking the “About” button above).
The Way of Improvement Leads Home blog moved here over the weekend. The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast will return next month after a several week hiatus. And we will start publishing daily essays on April 5, 2021. We have already announced our opening-day lineup (so to speak) to our patrons.
If you like our mission, we hope you will support us financially through Patreon. We are fundraising to:
- Cover start-up and maintenance expenses.
- Pay our writers. This is our largest expense. We’ve recruited some very talented writers and we hope to start paying them in six months.
- New content. We have a lot of ideas on this front, but we need your help to make them happen. Stay tuned.
Supporters of Current will get access to our premium content. Check out the Patreon site to learn how you can:
- Read patrons-only essays. We will drop an essay on Patreon every Friday starting April 16, 2021.
- Participate in regular ZOOM chats. The Current editors will host six to eight chats per year with authors, cultural critics, and intellectuals.
- Listen to my forthcoming history podcast “A History of Evangelicals and Politics.” Every week we will drop a 30-minute narrative episode. We will begin with the story of evangelicals and politics in the Obama years (2004-2016). I am modeling the podcast on Andrew Duncan’s popular podcasts The History of Rome and Revolutions. As a patron you will have exclusive access to this podcast. That’s right, we are doing it for patrons-only. (The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast will remain available to the general public on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts).
We hope you will help us to get this project off the ground. Learn more at our Patreon site or click the red SUPPORT button above!
As always, thanks for your readership! ?
