Why News & Notes?

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Mar 14, 2005

As the founder and President of Trinity Communications, I'm hoping to accomplish several things with our News & Notes section, for which this is the first entry.

First, I want to share important and/or interesting features of our non-profit work, hoping to increase the user's understanding of what we are trying to accomplish and of the hurdles to be cleared along the way.

Second, we'll use this section for an exchange of ideas to improve the web site. As donors, registered users and visitors make comments and suggestions, I'll share the best observations here, along with my own comments about what changes we may (or may not) make, and why.

Third, News & Notes will become to some degree my personal soapbox. There are three reasons for this:

  • Over the past few years, a number of friends and supporters have urged me to write more for the site, as I used to do in the early days of its predecessor PetersNet.
  • As I've gotten well into my mid-50's, I have an increasing desire to return to my theological and literary roots, and spend less time on the technological concerns which, out of sheer necessity as well as true interest, have dominated my last 15 years.
  • Finally, I hope this trend will add more "personality" to the web site, both increasing interest and forging stronger bonds with those who benefit from the services we provide.

All in all, I expect to contribute to this section between three and six times a week. Time will tell if others find it worthwhile. Meanwhile, I invite you to share your thoughts with me as we go.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
