Here’s a little something for those of you easily led to procrastination.
At synod, I will be leading a lunch time session on how blogs can serve the church. One of my tasks over the next few days is to come up with ideas and examples. So, I’d like you to search your memories, and other people’s blogs. What blog-posts (from any vaguely churchy blog — SEC or otherwise) have made a difference to you? Do particular conversation threads stick in your memory? Has a blog post or discussion ever helped you make sense of your faith, feel more connected with the church, given you hope, etc.?
I’m looking for good communicable examples.
Comments on good and bad practice and blog strategy are also welcome. If I find I’m preaching to the converted, then we’ll skip the ‘this is a blog’ phase and go straight to blogging-as-tool.
And I will of course say ‘one of the good things about blogging is that the blogging community will often do your work for you…’
