This semester, I’m teaching a class at Andover-Newton Theological School called, “Pastoral Uses of Social Media,” and this week we’re looking at blogs and blogging.
In addition to our usual online discussion boards, I’ve asked them to come over here and engage in a conversation with those of us who read and comment on this blog. I’ve told them that Seth Godin has called a blog a “megaphone combined with a telephone,” and that seems to be what this blog is for me: both a bully pulpit and a place to write personally, and even to interact in the comments (though I don’t do this as much as I should).
So, for those of you kind enough to comment on this post, please tell the class does this blog or blogging in general have any importance in pastoral ministry? If so, what importance?
The class will also be involved in the comment thread, so try to be nice to them.
