Church Times

Not for the first time this month, I turn to the Church Times and find myself reading about myself. This time it is an article about blogging clerics by Simon Sarmiento who commits many Good Works at

I do regard blogging as a part of my work now. Amongst certain friends who had the same training for ministry as I did, there is a common cry of "…oh, that is another thing they did not teach us at TISEC".  (Obvious examples include – working with children, dealing with church finances and preaching).

How to keep a blog (clerical or otherwise) is something new that ordinands are probably not being taught how to do which I could not have been expected to learn. Are there any other things like that?

The ability to print booklets perhaps?

    Blogging is OK and being able to read a sermon is good, but an up to date church website with correct details of what is happening during the week and on Sundays is far more important.
