Some neat stuff I discovered online today…

  1. A blogger called The Church Mouse has created a Twitter Stream of tweets all from clergy and bishops of the Church of England, called (wait for it) the Twurch of England. With over 30 bishops and priests participating (and I’m sure the number will grow), it’s an interesting glimpse into the collective mind of the C. of E. (Somebody needs to do this for Catholic clergy, and it ain’t me).
    The Twurch of England Twitter stream is a sidebar on the main blog which incidentally also includes a blogroll of all sorts of interesting Anglican blogs. Feast on it all at The Church Mouse.
  2. Speaking of the Anglican world, I’ve run across a wonderful interview from last year with the American Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, who for better or worse is known as “the gay bishop” by the world at large. The interview addresses the question of his homosexuality and his ministry, but of course goes beyond that to reveal the human side of the man. I think everyone (even progressives) ought to read this interview to remember that people at the heart of intense controversies are just human beings like the rest of us, trying to do the best they can where God has planted them, and are always so much more than “the issue” that defines them, for better or worse, in the public eye: The Third Way Interview with Gene Robinson.
  3. And speaking of Twitter, I’m now following Westminster Catheral via Twitter! You can too, at #wabbey.

Okay, that’s all for now. Happy surfing…

    Thanks for sharing this with us, I am still learning how to use Twitter effectively. This is a great example.
