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 church and other matters. His first post is here.
As Anthea continues to improve and her progress now is very much in the hands of the physios, we have taken the decision to reshape the blog as an opportunity for me to offer some thoughts on a variety of subjects.
Am I right in saying this is the first blog from a Church of England bishop? I’m not sure. I know the Episcopal church in Scotland has several bishops blogging. If so this is good news, given that the more centralised institutions of the* Church of England have generally been fairly anti-blogging up until now.
A blog to watch I think.
