It is the fifth Monday of the month. That means, there is no regularly scheduled blog post set for today. When there is a fifth Monday of the month we take it as a  break for our writers and contributors.

Recently, though, there has been a lot of interest in writing for ECCLESIAM, so I wanted to take this “day off” to talk a bit about the writing process for us. For those interested in writing, please read along and send us an email.

ECCESIAM’s main purpose is to take the research being conducted here at Southeastern University about the church, the inner life, theology, and the Bible, and make it widely available to help the Church (pastors and Christ-followers alike). This blog is a part practical and part theological. We believe that the Church is influenced by theology and that the theology held by the Church helps shape the practice of Christ-followers. This is not just a theology of knowledge (orthodoxy) but a theology of practice (orthopraxy) and emotions (orthopathy) as well.

We would love to hear your voice in this discussion! If you would like to write an article for us, check out the guidelines for articles that are publishable:

  1. Articles should be between 500-1000 words (750 is the sweet spot).
  2. Written on a lay level (high school graduate level) with the intent of helping the audience grow.
  3. Written for the largest audience possible.
  4. Written with active engagement in mind, e.g. by asking questions, posing thoughts for readers to reflect on / add their own voice into (readers will have the ability to respond with comments).

Any article submitted will go through our review process. If the piece fits with our mission, we will let you know when it will be published. All articles written are owned by you, but also are published under our ISSN.

Written articles can be emailed to We look forward to collaborating together in helping grow the Church with Christ.
