This just in today from the Church of England. I’m a bit tired so haven’t taken it entirely in yet, but it looks like it is a special website that uses the modern text messaging mobile telephones to deliver Lenten goodness to anyone who has a pound to spare for a 10 day influx. Oh, the website is here by the way: livelent.net
The idea is great, and by all accounts the content is great, but they need to work on the website side of things as David points out. “The entire supporting website is built in Flash. If you don’t have Flash on your computer, or are if you disabled and using a text to speech reader or other similar device, you’ll get nothing.” Indeed. I found some of the downloads simply undownloadable, as my web browser is set up to not allow pop-ups. And so on and so on.
Update 2: David Green has added to his post and reports that the text messaging service isn’t working yet. This is a real shame – it isn’t every day the Church of England gets a positive piece into the Sun complete with the number that interested enquirers should text. For it not to work is really very disappointing.
