Well its been a while since I posted here and it might be that some of you are wondering where I have been – the simple answer is nowhere, other than where I normally go in terms of life. It should be said however that I have not been here and this is because I have been doing stuff on Facebook where I am a member of two groups, one which is for UK Methodist in general and one which is for Faith and Worship students plus others like tutors.
There have been some interesting discussions over on UK Methodists and one of the current ones is about the cover on the Jubilee Bibles that have been produced – some people are debating the use of the Union flag on the cover and there are two main camps it seems – those who think it was good way to get part of the Bible into the hands of people who may not otherwise ever look at a Bible and those who feel it is totally inappropriate to use the flag on the cover of the Bible.
I am often amazed at how some of these topics take off on Facebook and have not worked out what it is that will create a lot of interest or not. The debate about the Bibles started more or less from someone asking why they had not been publicised better –it seems a lot of people had not heard anything about them surely a lost opportunity.
