Welcome to our new blog, Wheat & Tares. Who are the wheat? Who are the tares? Who knows?
D&C 86: 6-7. “But the Lord saith unto them, pluck not up the tares while the blade is yet tender (for verily your faith is weak), lest you destroy the wheat also. Therefore, let the wheat and the atares grow together until the harvest is fully ripe; then ye shall first gather out the wheat from among the tares, and after the gathering of the wheat, behold and lo, the tares are bound in bundles, and the field remaineth to be bburned.” Sucks to be a tare.
In his book Man’s Search for Meaning, Victor Frankl describes his finding that there were no good or evil people, no true heroes and villains. Former victims became persecutors. Former torturers became healers. Frankl found again and again that at every layer of humanity within a person, that person had great capacity for both good and evil.
We’re not here to judge who are the wheat and who are the tares, but to leave that to higher wisdom. Wheat and tares welcome. Especially wheat.
We just say, if you can't stand the wheat, get out of the kitchen
Well, being gluten free and all, is it okay if I come as rice? 😀
Good luck with the new blog!
You're missing some links here, for more traffic , but i'm just wondering, how much censoring and deleting will go on here? do you have a general policy statement?
Welcome, and thanks for your question. We encourage all respectful comments, whether or not they agree with our own perspectives. Spam comments, comments containing profanity or links to inappropriate sites will be deleted. Comments which egregiously derail the conversation may be moderated. We prefer to discuss things to resolution even though it may get heated. We hope you’ll come back and comment frequently!!
Site looks good, guys.
Looks great so far!! I look forward to reading.
I've got some gluten free food around the house, you are more than welcome.
Welcome all to the new site!
Welcome from me too! (and stealth test for something)
Nice! and site is looking better, congrats. I’d agree with moderation for spam or profanity, good call for me, and i hope that you only moderate those ‘egregious’ ones derailing conversations.
I hope you continue the MM model rather than a BCC or T&S type. And if you can add a podcast panel a la mormonexpression or Zeit cast, I’d say it will increase traffic even more so. Cheers,
I hope they follow the T&S and BCC model.
I prefer the LDSA model, myself.
My wife is gluten free too. I think we’re definitely rice friendly folk.
The banner looks great. I’m looking forward to reading the blog!
I’m looking forward to this new blog. Over at the old one, there is some bragging about the amount of traffic it has historically recieved. Not to get into a manhood contest (personhood? That doesn’t seem to quite fit), Most of the bloggers that I went there to read are over here now.
Congratulations on getting this started.
As far as the wheat/tare debate goes, I consider myself to be a truly fabulous alternative grain like rye, spelt or oats.
I love the concept and I’m glad I’m glad I won’t have to miss Hawrkgirrl and Bored in Vernals Blogs.
I’m a gourd from the vegetable garden nearby. Or actually, most of the time I am out of my gourd, which caused me to tare my hair out in frustration.
Site looks great guys! Excited to see the new crop.
Diane – thanks! We’re glad you are here!
We are a whole grain blog and accept grains of every type and persuasion, Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner….. 🙂
Congrats on a quick turn-around friends. And thanks for sharing just a bit of your spotlight with dovesandserpents.org — good things come in twos, or so I’ve heard.
Congrats on the new site, guys! Glad to have one blog where I can find all my favorite writers.
just droppin by to see if i’m going to get immediately banned from this one….
Just go ahead and keep that up and see what happens……
We still won’t ban you.
What about “cucumbers” that resist all forms of “pickling”?
