Re: WikiProject Calvinism[edit]

Thanks, but I, Nathaniel Pockras, am really not interested in participation. If nothing else, I prefer fields where things are cut and dried — not things like religion where what I believe is disputed by most people. For example, look at the history of Missionary and see what I put in, and the reactions I got. I know that we need people who can work in such situations, but I believe I'm more the person for matters such as geography pages: much work always needs to be done that really isn't disputable, unless (see the message on my talk page just above the invitation) it's an error and easily can be disproven. That, too, is why I do a lot of Wikipedia photography: aside from the question of doctored pictures, photographs are reliable and don't need sourcing the way text does. I guess you could just look at my edit history: check what I mostly do.
Thanks very much for the invitation, but basically it's not that I don't have time for stuff like this, but that this field isn't the kind of stuff I work with.

And yes, good guess who I am. I guess, though, you've not worked with any other people from Belle Center who are my age :-) Nyttend 12:50, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

An example of why it's hard for me to deal with matters such as this is your Presbyterian worship page: statements such as the thing about lining out being a practical measure are generally original research, and yet it often seems hard to have a good article like this without having original research.

Your recent edit to the Separation of church and state article[edit]

Tim,

I find it difficult to understand your recent edit to the Separation of church and state article, which your edit summary said has the purpose of correcting the article's presentation of RP views.

Before edit:

The Reformed Presbyterian Church, a Calvinistic denomination, also disagrees with separation of church and state, and advocates a full integration of the Church into the State.

After edit:

The Reformed Presbyterian Church, a Calvinistic denomination, also believes that the state constitutionally covenant to follow God's laws on earth; this does not involve a structural unification of church and state, though.

I have difficulty parsing the phrase: "believes that the state constitutionally covenant to follow God's laws on earth". According to Wictionary's definition Covenant is a noun which means (in the ordinary sense) an agreement between parties, or (in the Biblical sense) a promise made by God to Man. Could you please rephrase this or explain the phrasing? Also, I am not totally familiar with the reference cited at this point in the article. I presume that you are familiar with this document, and would ask that you cite the specific point in that document which supports your assertion (not that I doubt your assertion, but I would like to be able to find and read the section of the cited document which supports it).

Please either edit the article further or, if you prefer, could we communicate via my talk page? -- Boracay Bill 22:30, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Moved this to Talk:Reformed Presbyterian Church#What does this page document?

-- TimNelson 14:35, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

I see that you use a different browser. In Internet Explorer, the userboxes are partly hidden; for example, all I can read of the first line of your college education userbox is "This user has a Bac" Nyttend 14:41, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Do you mind if I revert all of your and my changes to "Reformed Presbyterian Church" to before all this discussion began? As it is, the page isn't much different from the denominational group page. Nyttend 15:37, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for rating John Foxe for the Calvinism project.

My appreciation for the work you've done already on the Calvinism project.--John Foxe 15:20, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I had the odd feeling that I just voted for myself.--John Foxe 16:00, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Blue Banner[edit]

By the way, where did the little logo that you designed come from? It overlaps with Image:Rpcnabanner.jpg, and if one is copyrighted, the other is too. Nyttend 15:37, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, I understand what I sounded like. My point is rather that I don't understand why Rpcnabanner is listed as copyrighted; I'd like to be able to source that it's not. I just this morning got an email from the secretary at Airdrie RPCS, who says that the banner (in its present words) was first flown in 1639, according to Hetherington's History of the Church of Scotland, although the shape is not mentioned. I don't have time now, but perhaps when I finish school and go home next month I can put that up as a source for the words not being a new creation, since my father owns a copy of Hetherington's History. Nyttend 12:52, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Penal Substitution[edit]

The Penal substitution page is a victim of edit wars. One editer has strong opinions and so has labelled the pages as "Neutrality disputed." His charge doesn't seem reasonable -there is no evidence cited of POV rather he is questioning the adequacy of the scholarship cited. Instead of adding to the article he wants to delete anything that doesn't meet his personal criteria. This is a request for advice -can a POV label be removed by anyone if it is unfair -what is the protocol for this. Have encouraged him to edit by adding other scholarship but he doesn't seem to want to unless he gets to rewrite the whole article his way -how do we get a way forward? (Be Dave 21:28, 19 April 2007 (UTC))

Translations[edit]

Hi Tim, I finally got around to finished Reformed Church in France. I added Marcel Manoël also and started Protestant Federation of France. As for Reformed Church in France, the french article has a lovely logo, but copyright and fair use are not my strong point in Wikipedia, so here I would gratefully defer to anyone with more experience. I think the article would benefit from it. As for Protestant Federation of France, the links for that I will add and translate over the coming weeks. I am not sure if it falls within the scope of your (and now, my) project, but I think they would be of interest nonetheless. Let me know either way. Cheers. Meshsa 18:11, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Your edit to Ball gown[edit]

You appear to have not even looked at the article before you cut and pasted material from Evening gown into it. What you copied was an almost exact duplicate of the section immediately above it.

But one difference I did notice:

  • ball gown - ballerina (to the ankle) or full-length (to the floor) (here already)
  • ball gown - always full-length for any white tie occasion (in section taken from Evening gown)

I don't suppose you've any idea which is correct (or if they depend on different interpretations of "full-length")...?

And something else you may wish to read: WP:MSH -- Smjg 20:28, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Francis Schaeffer talk page banner[edit]

Oops! (Red-faced icon goes here). Thanks for catching and fixing my mistake. I'm sorry about that. I hadn't had a lot of practice yet in using the Banners shell. But I should have noticed that Calvinism, Christianity, and Missouri projects weren't showing up when I previewed the page. But the Bio banner takes up a fair amount of vertical space (and I think somewhat more in the shell than out); at a very quick (less than careful, I'm sorry to say), glance, it looked like "everything was there". Again, apologies, --Lini 23:57, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi again, Tim - it looks like now some other editor has removed the Calvinism project banner from the Banners shell template on the Schaeffer talk page, without explanation; I don't see the editor in question listed as a participant in the Calvinism project; I thought you might like to check into it, and restore the banner, assuming it was not a legitimate removal. Cheers, --Lini 21:02, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

RP Seminary in Pittsburgh[edit]

If you have the time, would you expand the Seminary's article significantly from this history page on its website? I just cut out almost all of the RPTS article upon realising that it was a copyvio of that RPTS history webpage. Thanks! Nyttend 22:36, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: RFC World Music[edit]

Hi Tim - received your message and added some notes to the talk page on your new version. Thanks for the invitation. I believe you're on to something with your new approach, though it's certainly ambitious. Organizing music genre is a lot more complex than most people realize - and on top of the musiclogy aspects, there's the overlay of the marketplace that uses different words for everything! Good luck with the project! --Parzival418 Hello 07:13, 11 May 2007 (UTC)


Thanks, Tim. I'm honoured - though maybe not qualified. I'll have a look and do anything that occurs to me Gwaka Lumpa 13:17, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

WP Christianity Template[edit]

Hi TimNelson,

I noticed that not too long ago you did some work on the WP Christianity template. I was wondering if you'd be willing to do a few more edits there. I'd do them myself, but I can't make any sense of the code. Here's basically what I'm looking for:

  • A graphical representation of the articles assessed importance (just below the class assessment)
  • A WP Christianity "To Do" drop-down menu like the Template:Cvgproj has.

Would that be possible? Let me know on my talk page if you wouldn't mind making a few more edits. Thanks a bunch! Nswinton\talk 15:57, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your help with the importance tag. I didn't realize copy+paste was an option. I might take a harder look at it later and see if I can figure out how to edit those templates after all. Anyway, thanks again! Nswinton\talk 12:26, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

genre pages for electronic music[edit]

Hi Tim - It's been good working with you on the music genre articles.

There's also a discussion going on here, and in the section just above that one, regarding re-organizing the various articles within the general area of electronic music, to clarify the areas of electronic art music, electronic dance music and electronica, which is a hard to define area. If you have the time, I would be interested in your comments at the above linked page and I think you may find the topic interesting as well. --Parzival418 Hello 09:19, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Received your reply. No problem... the reason I thought you might be interested is that the issue is in regards to the organization of the pages and how they link to each other, sort of like what we were working on at Music genre. Electronic music has an art side, Electronic art music, and a popular side, currently at Electronica which is the page where the reorganization discussion got started because that term does not have a clear definition. Anyway, no worries and thanks for taking a look. --Parzival418 Hello 01:59, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Chords to series by example[edit]

Since we're doing manual semaphores, I thot you might like to be able to guess where you'd find mine. I was going to just pull some chords being used, but I would especially appreciate knowing whether I understand the difference between minor and major. It's not a frequency multiplier that I use, although that's a fine way to consider it, because that's the test mode. It's a script-based synthesizer that calculates sine-waves and writes them into raw data for sound exchange, complete with glides and queer silences at non-zero amplitudes due to sample-level timing, laziness, and the one-two beat that reverb blows into them.

Roots music[edit]

Hi Tim. Thanks for the invite to join Roots music project. Never having joined a project, and being accustomed to editing in a pretty random and disorganised way, I'm a bit hesitant about joining a project. What is the expectation on someone who joins up for it? Thanks. Bluewave 12:06, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Re Rev. vs Revd[edit]

Hi Tim, I was wondering which article you were referring to. I have made changes several times, but it was usually when Reverend was abbreviated without a period ("Rev"). Generally in English, when the abbreviation ends with a letter other than the word itself, it must include a period (such as: etc. - the full word being et cetera). When the abbreviation ends with the same letter as the word itself, the period can be dropped, such as Doctor or Saint (Dr or Dr., St or St.).

Another problem most people have with the title Reverend is that it must include a definite article every time it is used as a title. It's the same as the title Honourable. English requires a "the" in front of every adjective used as a noun. I'm often fixing articles that leave off "the" in front "Reverend" for simple grammatical reasons. It is required both in sentences and when the name is standing alone.

That being said, when I come across these, I generally fix every use of "Reverend" without a definite article. When I see "Reverend" abbreviated "Rev." I leave it, because it is a completely correct and very common, especially in the US. When I find an example of "Rev" (no period), I will fix it by adding a "d", simply because it's my preference. There are examples when I did use "Rev.", the best being my contributions to List of Moderators of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), to which I added almost all the names. Generally, the misuse of "Reverend" without "the" is my biggest pet peeve.

If you are interested, Fowler's Modern English Usage has a good entry on "Reverend". It is considered one of the foremost authorities on the English Language. Here's part of it from the Third Edition (Clerandon Press, Oxford 1996):

Reverend is abbreviated Revd (no point) or, with increasing frequency, Rev. (with point). It means ‘deserving reverence’, as contrasted with reverent ‘feeling or showing reverence’. . . The correct form of address to a member of the clergy is The Revd (or The Rev.) J. Smith (or with Christian name in full). To describe a person as Rev. Smith or to speak of such a person as Reverend Smith or the Reverend is incorrect. It is commonly considered unacceptable to use Revered…with a surname alone (rather than with a forename, initial, other title, or some combination of these) or without preceding ‘the’: thus, the Reverend Joseph Brown, the Reverend J. B. Brown, the Reverend Dr Brown, but not (the) Reverend Brown, and not Reverend as a form of address, either spoken (Hello, Reverend (Brown)) or to begin a letter (Dear Reverend (Dr Brown)). Actual usage is variable, but members of the clergy are quite rightly adamant about the need to keep to the older conventions while recognizing that in our age of receding Christian belief those who break with tradition are usually deeply respectful but quite simply ignorant of protocol.

I hope you're not too sorry you asked!

Peter Kennedy[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you made Peter Kennedy into a dab page on 30 May because of a planned article on Peter Kennedy (folk musician). Were you planning on making this page? If not, would you object to me having Peter Kennedy (figure skater) moved back to Peter Kennedy? I don't see a reason to have a dab page for an article that exists and one that isn't going to be created. Thanks. Kolindigo 16:34, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

In Marble Halls[edit]

I have removed "In Marble Halls" (Roud 20174) from the Roud folk song index, as there is no such number. Presumably you are thinking of the Steeleye Span riddle on "Now We are Six". This isn't a song, but a riddle, originally from "Mother Goose" Mother Goose. I am curious to know where you got the number from. Ogg 10:15, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Andrew Lammie/Bonnie Lass of Fyvie[edit]

OK Thanks. I suppose this is one that could be argued either way. It seems certain the two songs have a common root: they both take place in Fyvie; both have a girl who falls in love with a soldier; both (have versions which) include a parting that takes place on a bridge and one of them dying before they meet again. I suppose it can be argued that the variants have diverged to a point where they have become two separate songs; the one in the form of a long, rather dark, ballad and the other a shorter lyrical song with a lighter tone. Anyway, I'll check my facts carefully and take up the argument on the song's talk page, as you suggest. Bluewave 07:30, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

RfC @ Visual kei[edit]

You stated previously we should have something that shows the musical characteristics of Visual kei, which I have been searching for, but recently we had a new user that is popping in with a lot of great sources. I also found some sources using Google Scholar that show that a "genre" is not defined soley by sound, but by lyrics, content, and cultural notions. With the references we have now, I think we have a strong case. Would you come look at the debate once again? Denaar 03:21, 9 September 2007 (UTC)


Flamenco guitar[edit]

Thanks for fixing my flamenco guitar userbox (I'm really weak at Wikipedia technical sides). I've been almost totally absent from English Wikipedia owing to the plague of the century: lack of time, stress, etc. But thanks also for your suggestion about the flamenco guitar article. I'll try to find some more time in the following months to work on it, as well as on other guitar and flamenco related articles. GemmaMS 22:33, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Electric Folk Task Force[edit]

Hi Tim, I noticed you're working on this Task force page. I wonder if you wouldn't mind giving me some hints in the correct direction. I haven't created any project/task force pages before, I'd like to put togher a group of editiors here in chicago to improve pages related to the chicago folk scene and chicago artists (specifically ones that attended, instructed or were otherwise involved with the Old Town School of Folk Music). I think the best way to go about it would be to create a Task force page like yours as a staging point for the group as well as to add our contributions to the parent Roots project. Is there a protocol for adding these things or can I just create the Task Force page under the roots project page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dannygutters (talkcontribs) 21:39, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

No sources provided, and only sources I could find on Google are forum topics and blog entries.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Articles for deletion nomination of Metaphysical fantasy[edit]

I have nominated Metaphysical fantasy, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Metaphysical fantasy. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Article DW (Dave) Drouillard[edit]

As per a suggestion from User: Schmidt, who has recommended my article as a "very acceptable stub," I am seeking guidance from folks in the roots community who may be familiar with the genres of music that Dave covers. His Cajun and Bluegrass connections are well documented, but I am writing to you specifically because of your interest in electric folk. Dave called on Mark Mercier of Max Creek, a long-established New England "jam" and "improv" band, to bring an authentique psychadelic/folk rock influence to his writing on many of the tracks on his Plainsongs album. If you have any thoughts on the article, ( the article has been "relisted" ) I would greatfully appreciate your help in mentoring my first Wikipedia article. Thank you for your consideration.Darkloon (talk) 03:39, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

From the Editor[edit]

Vienna Karlskirche frescos4b.jpg

This month marks the observation of Pentecost, one of the most important feast of the Christian liturgical year. It is our hope here that all of you, regardless of your religious affiliation (if any), find that the holiday, and its accompanying activities, an enjoyable and beneficial experience. We also hope that this "Birthday of the Church" is one which gives you the same joy as the birthday of yourself or your loved ones.

Ichthus is the successor to the long running WikiProject Christianity newsletter, run under the WikiProject Christianity’s Outreach department. As such, you will continue to see information about our latest featured and good articles, DYKs, as well as new members who have joined our project. You might also see links to Christianity related news from the mainstream media!

With that, I wish you all happy reading!

Help Bring Wikipe-tan "into the fold"[edit]

Wikipe-tan full length.svg

As many of you may know, our unofficial mascot, dear Wikipe-tan, hasn't yet indicated any particular beliefs. However, yes, as we all know, ahem, some people might object to our beloved mascot running around in a French maid outfit. People do talk, you know. ;) If anyone might be able to develop an image of the dear lady in a image more, well, "Christian," I would like to see perhaps a vote for next month as to which, if any, image of the dear girl we might make our own unofficial mascot. Please post your images here.

Christianity in other wikis[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg
As many of you might now, there are a large number of other Wikimedia Foundation projects, including WikiSource, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, WikiQuote, and others. I certainly believe that Wikibooks and Wikiquote might be among the more directly relevant sister projects. If any of you can think of any particular efforts in these other projects which you think would benefit from more input, please let us know here, so we can help spread the word around.

Spotlight on the Outreach department[edit]

Handshake (Workshop Cologne '06).jpeg

Ichthus will spotlight a different subproject or workgroup of WikiProject Christianity. This edition will spotlight on our vital Outreach department. This comparatively small, but vital, project unit is dedicated to welcoming new editors to Wikipedia and the Christianity related content, and to providing information to the various project members, in forms like this newsletter.

The scope of articles with which this group deals is truly enormous, and, given the wide variety of material with which we deal, we would very much welcome the input of more individuals, particularly individuals who are particularly knowledgeable of the less well-known and less frequently monitored articles related to Christianity.

Speaking personally, I would be very, very gratified if we were to have this become a very, very large and active unit, with members from the broad spectrum of Christian beliefs, practices, and groups. The broader the spectrum and areas of expertise of members we have, the better we will be able to help manage the content. Please consider whether you believe you might be able to contribute in this vital area.

I believe[edit]

... in the statements contained in the Nicene Creed. I believe that the Bible is one of the two defining bases for belief. The other is the Sacred tradition, which provides us with means of interpreting the Scriptures, as well as some teachings which have been handed on by God outside of the scriptures. I believe that the Magisterium has been empowered to fill this interpretative function. I believe that clerical celibacy is a rule that should generally be followed. I am a member of the Catholic Church.

Contest of the month
We currently have a remarkable lack of Wikipedia:Wikipedia-Books. Right now, Category:Wikipedia books on Christianity contains only 12 books. We certainly could have at least one book on each major grouping within Christianity. One of the challenges for this month, then, is working to put together books on relevant topics. For this month, one contest is for editors to assemble the basic Wikipedia books for each of the main topics of the extant related projects. When finished, they should their creation of the books at the main Christianity noticeboard, and at the end of the month the project will award barnstars to those who have made a significant efforts in developing this underdeveloped content.

Also this month, we are going to have have a challenge to create and improve some of our more important missing or low-quality articles. As biographies are often a bit easier, this month we are choosing two biographies: Karl Behm, which has yet to be started, and the currently Stub-class article Nerses IV the Gracious. A barnstar will be awarded to any editor who can get these articles up to DYK quality level and ultimately selected for the DYK section of the main page.


Calendar
Thie coming month (mid-August through mid-September) includes feasts dedicated to the honor of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Bartholomew the Apostle, Nativity of Mary, and the Exaltation of the Cross.

Given the number of significant news events that relate to religion, including claims of miracles, assignment of bishops and other religious leaders, church conferences, and other events, this site provides an excellent opportunity to provide in-depth coverage of current events at greater length than wikipedia.

We have every reason to believe that this will make it significantly easier for the Methodism work group to create and develop content relevant to Methodism. To help that along, we certainly encourage everyone to do what they can to help David and the other Methodism editors to bring the content relevant to their tradition to the highest possible level of quality.

As some of you may have seen, the Simple English Wikipedia has been experiencing some difficulties lately. This particular entity could be of great value to several individuals who are trying to learn English. As some of you who do speak foreign languages know, one of the most easily available, and, in general, useful learning aids for people is a text they know already, which allows them to focus on the specific words of the new language. Various recorded readings and translations of the Bible are among the best examples of this. Any efforts to try to enhance this vital means of informing a large segment of our readership is more than welcome. People interested in helping develop it are encouraged to leave a note regarding their specific articles of interest at the Christianity noticeboard. It would be wonderful if we could report some significant contributions to this sister site next month. And, of course, if we do have something to report, those involved would receive our greatest thanks.

WikiProject Holidays/Christmas task force is the group whose purpose is to help develop the content related to the Christmas season, including Advent, New Year's, and related holidays. As many of us know, in several parts of the world, including the United States, the Christmas season is not only the time of one of the greatest holidays of the Christian liturgical year, but it is also the "make or break" time for many retailers, whose profitability for the year often depends on their success in this time of the giving of sometimes significantly expensive gifts. In other parts of the world, the winter solstice period and sometimes specifically Christmas itself means something that might surprise many Christians, like the Christmas in Japan, where Christmas is one of the times hotels receive the greatest number of, often unmarried, couples staying there for the night. The solstice season is also significant to several other religions. Many of these days are also legal holidays in several places. In Belarus, for instance, both the Western and Eastern Christmas commemorations are legal holidays. We would certainly welcome the members of this project to donate some of their time and talents in the upcoming months to improving this significant content.

The core topics work group is the group whose specific purpose is to help identify and develop those articles which are of greatest importance to an overall understanding of the broad subject of Christianity, based on what is included in the core topics list. These articles include some of specific churches and individuals, history, philosophical and theological matters, and more. We have had some recent discussion regarding which articles should be included in this list, and it probably makes sense to revisit the selections, and try to figure out how best to work to make them high quality articles. Discussion is beginning at WT:X regarding these matters, and all input is welcome.

Contest of the month
As I imagine many of our editors will be editing at a greatly reduced level for the next few weeks, what with the Christmas and New Year's holidays coming, there is no specific content-related contest this month. The contest, if anything, is to make the most of the season, in whatever way, if any, you deem appropriate.


Calendar
This coming month (mid-December through mid-January) includes the Advent season, and one of the two greatest holidays of the Christian year, Christmas. Other major feasts in the next month include those of the Feast of the Epiphany, Baptism of the Lord, Saint Stephen, Thomas the Apostle, Holy Innocents, John the Evangelist, Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil the Great, Saint Genevieve, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Saint Sava.


Featured content and GA report
Since the last report, Anne Hutchinson nominated by User:Sarnold17 was promoted to FA. Grade I listed churches in Lancashire by User:Peter I. Vardy was promoted to Featured List. The image in the Church of the Month and Christian art sections of this newsletter were promoted to Featured Picture status.

In the spirit of Christmas, the spotlight for the coming month might actually best be on those people closest to you. We know that a lot of our editors here are associated in some way or another with schools, and many if not most of them are going on rather extended breaks for the holidays. This can give some of us a chance to meet up with old friends, spend time with our families and those close to us, and, in a sense, "recharge" for the new year. So, for all of you who are in some way part of that group, we wish you the very best of holidays. We hope you all return to editing after the holidays with your spirits lifted and with your energies at peak level. There are some small matters in development here as well, and it is our hope that some of them will be ready come the next newsletter. But, until then, we wish you all the happiest and holiest (if appropriate) holidays.

Contest of the month
No particular contest this month. I am however getting rather close to getting together a more or less complete set of articles relating to different areas of Christianity which can be found in recent reference sources on the broad topic of Christianity, and about various subtopics, which I hope to have finished in the next few weeks. I wonder what the rest of you might think of, maybe, making the contests of future months be basically directed at filling in the gaps of our existing coverage of topics, like those topics given significant coverage in specialized reference works which we don't yet have content on, and giving the thanks, and rewards, whatever they might be, to those who create and develop such content. I am starting a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Christianity noticeboard#Future contests, and would very much welcome any input from interested parties in how to set it up, determine winners including how many winners, etc.

The Spotlight this month turns to the the Syriac Christianity work group. The scope of this project includes the various traditions of Syriac Christianity, including the Assyrian Church of the East, Ancient Church of the East, Church of the East, Syriac Orthodox Church, Chaldean Catholic Church, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, Melkite Greek Catholic Church, Syriac Catholic Church, Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, and Saint Thomas Christians. One of these groups, the Assyrian Church of the East, is considered by scholars to have probably been, for several hundred years, the largest Christian grouping in the planet, with its numerous members in Central Asia and Eastern Asia. Numerous texts, traditions, and practices unique to these groups exist, including the Jesus Sutras and the belief of the Assyrian Church of the East that the bread they use in the preparation of their Eucharist uses the same basic yeast as that used in the bread of the Last Supper itself. Sadly, given the linguistic barriers to much of the content relative to these groups, and the comparative lack of notoriety they have in the Western world, much of this content does receive less attenion, and thus less development, than much other content. There is a large amount of extremely valuable historical material here still waiting to be adequately developed by editors with an interest in the topic, and I personally very much hope that we can draw more attention to these topics, and the content related to them.

Calendar
This coming month (mid-January through mid-February) includes The Presentation of Christ in the Temple or Candlemas and the Conversion of Paul. Other major feasts in the next month include those of Saint Agnes, Saint Francis de Sales, Saints Timothy and Titus, Thomas Aquinas, John Bosco, Saint Agatha, Paul Miki, [{Saint Scholastica]], and Saint Anskar.

Possible new article for "George Kendall (theologian)"[edit]

Hi, should you have the time, I wonder if you would be willing to help me with an article about George Kendall (theologian) (1610–1663), a Calvinist. Someone keeps requesting an article be created with the title George Kendall (controversialist) which could be any number of people, but I think they might mean this George Kendall. Please see my sandbox if you feel you may know more about this person than I do, and care to fill it out more so it can be considered notable enough for Wikipedia's standards (it surely isn't at the moment). I contacted you because you were the initial author of History of Calvinism, and figure you know more about Calvinism than I. I am also inviting User:Jfhutson, since he/she has made the overwhelming majority of edits to History of Calvinism. And please feel free to invite anyone else who you think may be interested also.

You may also create a talk page for the sandbox, and add any comments you wish to there. Thanks, Hamamelis (talk) 21:01, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

I suspect I just moved a section of another page there. I'm no expert, and have never heard of the man you mention. I've also significantly reduced my Wikipedia time, so am unable to help at this point.
