Century blog posts from before July 2010 are archived at Theolog, our old staff blog. Posts from July on (i.e., until the launch of the new site) are crossposted at both places, as are their comments. In addition, the entire Theolog archive of lectionary-related posts is available here on the new site (without the original comments) for use as part of our new Reflections on the Lectionary tool.
