New Blog Feature: Mobile Browsing

Five Loaves and Two Fish is now able to support mobile browsing. Give it a try: visit the blog with your iPhone, Blackberry, or Android device. The blog will automatically detect and reformat the site. Leave a comment to let us know if it works with your mobile device.


Thank God for his wonderful guidance–Five Loaves and Two Fish has been online for over two years. Recently the content management system was upgraded for the first time. Writers will see a different interface when they log-in, but the process of submitting contributions remains the same. Readers should see no major difference. Let us know in the comments or via the CONTACT page if you find any bugs. God bless!

An Announcement to Blog Contributors

  • If you registered to be a contributor on the blog, but never received your automatically generated password, please leave a comment with the username or email address you registered with. This will be corrected shortly for you. We apologize for this inconvenience! Sometimes the email system tied to the blog software malfunctions.
  • As a final reminder, if you do finish an entry please un-check the “- Unfinished-” category along the right-hand side of the user interface and re-save the document. This lets the reviewers know they can start reviewing/publishing your entry as soon as possible. This could be a common reason why an entry of yours has not been published.
  • We’ve long passed our one year mark. Praise God! Thank you for all your contributions thus far! I think a great deal of people have been edified since we launched Five Loaves and Two Fish. “…let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” (Gal 6:9).
