Submissions: So basically the “201” means we want to go beyond a key verse followed by a simple illustration (story) that leads into two paragraphs of thoughts and then it’s done. So we’re thinking 6 or 7 or 8 paragraphs. And not just one Bible verse, but several related texts. Maybe a short quote or two from other sources. We actually tend to steer away from illustrations. And we try to keep the articles “timeless” and without reference to current events. Yeah, I know; we’re devotional snobs.
In other words we want to go beyond the Our Daily Bread approach, which I would consider more “101.” The blog’s tag line is, “Digging a Little Deeper.”
But not too deep. Parsing out the Greek text is great if that’s what you do, but the average reader tends to glaze over; though basic word study is always useful.

…If you have something in mind email the link or the full text to wilkinson [at] nexicom [dot] net; and write “C201 Submissions” in the subject field or use the form below. We’re mostly interested in writers who themselves blog, so we can get an overview of their other writing and interests. If your blog doesn’t have an “about” page — or one that isn’t too cryptic –please note your name and what part of the world you call home, which will be published, and if you can give us 25-words about yourself, that would also be helpful. Name-dropping your church home may help us get an idea of your writing perspective.
General Questions, Prayer Requests and Comments: You can also use the above mentioned email address or the form below to ask questions, suggest sources for content here, or ask about a particular Bible passage.
