“God is the interesting thing about religion.” – Evelyn Underhill

After spending a number of years writing about apologetics, polity, and things of that nature, I find that these days I am hungry to write about the substance of the Catholic faith and the way that it invades and infuses every corner of life. This little blog is my attempt to think through how God is at work in my life and in the world.

I am a husband and father of two boys on the autism spectrum. I host a podcast called God and Comics and I write for a number of outlets, most notably The Living Church.

    Fr. Jonathan, I cannot tell you how much your work on the Conciliar Anglican site has blessed me. I have, at times, felt adrift in Anglicanism feeling pulled to and fro by the many parties and streams that claim to be its center. Your postings have been a reliable guide in how to be grounded in classical Anglicanism. I hope you will still find time to share more with us there.

    However, I am very excited to hear more from you in Working the Beads. I would love to hear more about your devotion to the Blessed Virgin and how that has evolved or perhaps been renewed through your ministry as an Anglican priest. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    Fr Jonathan,

    Greetings from South Africa!

    I’ve been an avid reader of Conciliar Anglican but too shy to comment. I felt inadequate as the commentors were heavy guns who are learned in these matters. I’ve learned a lot on the other blog.

    Rest assured that you have found at least one reader for this new blog. I’m an unapologetically Anglo catholic mom, who is also parenting an ADHD child with all sorts of learning disabilities. I found myself throwing myself at Mary’s feet yesterday telling her how difficult the journey is for me, asking for her intercessions since she understands very well how it is to parent a special child.

    Excuse the blabbering, I’m just excited to find out that you have taken up this project!

    Fr. Jonathan: Thank you for your work at Conciliar Anglican; it was truly a blessing to me and those walking with me. I hope you will consider preserving the contents at Conciliar Anglican in a more permanent form, such as a book! As a catechist, I would be very grateful to have your observations between two covers. 🙂

    But I am looking forward to this new project, and will pray for you, as I hope you will be praying for your readers.

    Grace and peace,

  4. Father, thank you for all you’ve done. I’ve enjoyed following your previous blog, and feel that this new venture will be equally (if not more) of interest to me. As a priest, and a father of three, I identify with much of your description of family life, so will follow with interest…
