>The News and Observer has recently run two articles on blogging that are worth checking out. Yonat Shimron wrote Blessed be the Bloggers: For they shall influence church policy and politics (Friday, June 23) and Flo Johnston wrote about this blog in Christian Convos flourish as pastor begins his blog: Reconciliation UMC reverend finds new voice via the Internet. (Saturday, June 24)

Flo was extremely generous, and I am appreciative of her work in the Durham community over the years. She was formerly the religion editor for the Herald-Sun and is now writing for the News and Observer. Glad her voice and pen (keyboard) are still around the community.
