Friends, we have made some basic decisions about Storypath and the immediate future and wanted to share those with you for your planning.
We will be posting all of the Narrative Lectionary Links for Year 2 but will begin to double up on posting those in May and June so that all Narrative Lectionary Links through Sept. 6, 2020 will be up by June 24. All of you who have ever wished we posted earlier will be thrilled! We will at that time have completed the entire four year cycle of the Narrative Lectionary.
The Year A Revised Common Lectionary Links will be provided though Pentecost, 2020, so the May 31 Link will be posted on April 24. There will be no more Revised Common Lectionary Links posted after this time. (But don’t forget that you can use the Scripture index on the Storypath site to find other books we have used for upcoming passages in previous years!)
In May and June, we will be posting a few book reviews as well as some posts with wisdom from some of our writers about how you can create your own Links – resources for studying the Scriptures, good places to find children’s books, etc. We hope that this will stimulate your own thinking about how you can continue using books to connect with our faith story. There will be no new content posted on Storypath after June 30, 2020.
The Union Presbyterian Seminary Library has committed to continuing to pay our internet service provider so that the content that has been created and shared over the last 10 years is still available to you. Storypath will essentially stand as a searchable archive for the foreseeable future after July 1, 2020. In addition, I will be creating spreadsheets listing all of the books we have used as Links, along with the scripture passages linked with them. Most likely, these will be shared via Google Docs but we will let you know how they will be shared in June. (You won’t have to have these as the Storypath site will still be available to you, but some of our readers have asked for such a document.)
The last question to be answered concerns our Facebook page. We get more conversation there than via the website, but that page has to be linked to a personal account and I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook these days so am uncertain if I want to continue my personal Facebook page after July 1 when my time administering the Storypath site is over. That decision can wait for awhile and we will certainly update you on the Facebook page itself if it will be continued.
We thank you for your support of the Storypath site through the years and hope you’ll remain part of the community built through it until July. And then we hope you will continue with the rewarding work of connecting the big questions of our lives and faith with children’s literature.
