The new BishopBlog has several purposes:
- A vehicle for me, as bishop, to cast vision.
- An informational Grand Central Station (as already described).
- A forum for interacting over UB-related issues.
We’ve needed a forum.
- The United Brethren magazine was a forum…until we discontinued it in 1993.
- Annual and midyear conferences were a forum…until we discontinued them in 2005.
- The national conference isn’t a good forum. Not with several hundred delegates, and meetings only once every two years.
But good interaction can occur via the Internet. That’s what we want here.
- I want your honest reactions to what I and others write.
- I want to know what’s on your heart.
- I want to know how you perceive things.
- I want to learn from you.
- I want us all to learn from each other.
