The Edge of the Inside

The first iteration of the blog was, Just Todd, written on the old Blogger platform. I moved from there to Typead. After reading a piece by Father Richard Rohr, I adopted the blog title, The Edge of the Inside and moved to WordPress. Fr. Roher describes the prophetic position as, the edge of the inside. The location in the analogy provides an opportunity to welcome those who are coming and to engage those who are leaving. One may also utter a call to those just outside to consider Jesus is Lord while at the same time calling out the seat of power at the center of whatever group with which one may identify or what category accompany existing relationships. 

The new iteration of the website combines my interest in writing, though not as often as I like, with the opportunity to host a podcast. Here you will find newer and older posts. Over time we change. It is possible you may discover some of those changes if you care to read the older posts.

Thank you for stopping by.
