Why the clergy should blog

2 April 2008

Having just spent quite a bit of time yesterday at the SAFCEI conference trying to persuade religious leaders of various kinds to get into blogging, and especially reading the SAFCEI blog, I found this post that puts the arguments so much more eloquently than I could.

Hat-tip to Stephen Murray for the link

Here are the reasons in outline:
1. …to write
2. …to teach
3. …to recommend
4. …to interact
5. …to develop an eye for what is meaningful
6. …to be known

The last one assumes that the blog will be read by parishioners of the clergy concerned.

    Father Stephen at Glory to God for All Things has a very interesting blog – you could use that as an exemplar. http://fatherstephen.wordpress.com
