Apology to Catez

In the initial version of my post entitled The Barnabas Project below, I wrongfully mischaracterized the website Allthings2all, written by Catez Stevens. The incorrect sentence has been removed and I think it would only perpetuate the wrong to repeat it here. However, I want to publicly apologize to Ms. Stevens. It was wrong to mis-characterize her site. I should not have done so.

I would, however, like to say something about Allthings2all and Ms. Stevens. Her site is very inspirational. Ms. Stevens posts on a number of different topics that all Christians can find uplifting, inspiring, and/or thought-provoking. In particular, she is involved in a street ministry to people that most of us just walk by on a daily basis. She and those she works with, instead of just walking by, minister to them and reveal the love of Jesus. Her range of topics is much broader, but her posts on that particular ministry are powerful. In addition, Ms. Stevens is a terrific writer.

My post was intended to be about uniting Christians. By my sloppiness, I have caused the reverse. I am very sorry.

Ah, but now, my friend, you've shown exactly the sort of grace and humility that we all need if we're to learn and grow through our differences. I know this wasn't your intention, but this apology is, in my view, even more powerful and important than your Barnabas post, which was a great post. So, way to go! And thanks!

Hi Mark,
Thankyou for this. As you know I've been reading SCO for a long time now and once again it shows itself to be a blog of integrity. Apology accepted. I'm sorry I didn't get here sooner - I was trying to find something on Google and you know how they can give you a zillion hits that are off the topic one wants...
I appreciate your words here. I must add that some very good writing takes place here at SCO too!
God bless you,

Many thanks. Glad to have that behind me. It's a lesson in caution that I hope I have learned well until the next time I blow it.

Pastor Roberts,

Thank you for your kind words.
