Support The Saint John of Damascus Society on #GivingTuesday

Hi all, both of you. I’ve been blogslacking. I know this. I’m teaching, dissertating, childrearing, my wife is doing the same, I’m applying for grants and fellowships for next year, I’ve got a commute to church I didn’t have a year ago, and this has been a very busy fall for the Saint John of Damascus Society. I have a few posts that I will have up in the next week or so, and then hopefully I can sort of get back to normal.

SJDS GivingTuesday LogoIn the meantime — today is #GivingTuesday, the day that’s intended to provide balance to Black Friday and Cyber Monday by focusing on giving to charitable causes rather than gifts of a retail, commercial nature. The Saint John of Damascus Society, as a non-profit charitable organization, is participating in #GivingTuesday, and I invite you to consider celebrating today by supporting us. My full appeal is here, but you will be supporting efforts like the Psalm 103 project.

Giving to the Society online is very easy; go to, click the “Donate” button, and PayPal will walk you through it from there. If you’re interesting in making a gift but want to do it another way, or you want to talk to me about it further, then by all means get in touch with me by e-mail — richardbarrett AT — and we can chat.

Thanks for your consideration. Semi-regular blogging will resume soon.
