The A-bike Evangelist

The A-bike Evangelist

I have discovered that one of the people who was up against me in the Creative Blog Category in the Christian Blog Awards is an evangelist who navigates around Britain in a sailing boat, stopping here and there to evangelise riding a Sinclair A-bike whilst dressed as John Wesley. You don’t believe me do you?…

Premier duped by Lark News

Premier duped by Lark News

Premier, the popular online internet Christian radio station and website posted this story today entitled ‘Virtual pastors sweep across America’, an interesting story about computerised preachers. Unfortunately the source for the story is the US satirical Christian website ‘Lark News‘ – the original story is here. Oh dear! Someone at Premier will have egg on…

Top of the blogs

All bloggers like a little bit of recognition. We all did our best to appear terribly humble when talking about the Christian Blog Awards, but secretly we all think that it would be nice to have a few more readers and a few more links and that sort of thing. This week two ‘top of…

Evangelistic blogs

Evangelistic blogs

Today I have been thinking about the concept of ‘evangelistic blogs’. I have not been thinking about this all day obviously – I did one and a half loads of washing as well. Yesterday the people from the Christian Blogging Awards said that my blog might fit into the ‘evangelistic blog’ category. This surprised me…

Blogs which made me smile

Here are some blogs that made me smile over the last 24 hours. You probably read them already, but perhaps some of you don’t. Little Red Boat (link) Today’s entry: Colour me blindd Anna arranges her books in colour order. This book next to that book, poetry cheek by jowl with travel writing, etiquette rubbing…

Let the bloggers blog

Let the bloggers blog

I was sent a nice e-mail by the people at the Amnesty International telling me about their irrepressible.info website and also some videos they have made. I know I was not the only person to be sent the e-mail, but I am not going to let that affect me. In summary irrepressible.info is all about…

I am the cause of our problems

“…our problems are caused by (in England) the Inclusive Church lot and Fulcrum, people like Maggie Dawn and even dave Walker. They all have this holier than thou attitude and denigrate anyone who shows human emotion or passion. They are the ones who are made into spokesmen/women and later into bishops and archdeacons and so…

Who reads the Anglican blogs?

A lot of the blogs commenting on current Anglican goings-on were kind enough to link to my Primates meeting cartoon series the other day. I thought it would be nice to link back to some of them and also interesting to see how many people clicked through to my site from the different blogs. I’ve…

Giles Fraser on bloggers

From this week’s Church Times: Yet, despite the social unacceptability of sending hate mail, those who post comments on websites — also known as bloggers — are able to get away with the most disgusting bile, wrapped in the clothing of anonymity. “Comment is free” is what The Guardian calls its blog site. Comment is…

Rejesus blog

Rejesus, the good website about Jesus, is to move from bulletin boards to a blog for its discussiony bits. This is the link to the new rejesus (with no capitals) blog. The discussion board, which has now been made a bit difficult to find from the main bits of the site, will close on February…

Bishop Mike blogs on

A blog was set up last year for the Bishop of Bristol and his wife following a motoring accident. The blog has received over 100000 hits so far, and the good news is that his wife Anthea ‘continues to improve’. I am pleased to see that Bishop Mike is to continue his blog on emerging…
