Ta Da! Introducing: 'epiScope'!
The Episcopal Church has officially entered the Blogosphere with the premiere of it's very own Blogsite: epiScope
According to Jan Nunley, Deputy for Communication at The Episcopal Church Center, "Mostly (the reporters and editors of the Episcopal Church Office of Communicatins) will track references to the Episcopal Church in online media ... provide links to full documentation and source material ... do a little "rumor control" where it's needed ... provide a moderated forum for public discussion of substantive issues raised by stories and opinion pieces... and provide a way for the wider Episcopal Church, the Anglican Communion, and the general online public to interact more directly with ENS and Episcopal Life writers and others at the Episcopal Church Center in New York and on the road."
Nunley adds, "Using a blog, rather than relying solely on ENS or Episcopal Life, permits us to work virtually in "real time" on breaking stories, instead of waiting for a full story to be written and edited and a page to publish on the main website. We'll always do a complete followup and link back to epiScope's pages once it's published."
So, head on over there and check them out. Oh, and welcome them as you would have them welcome you. (Or . .. something like that.)
