New weblog for the President and Vice President
The leaders of the Methodist Church have launched a
weblog. Revd Martyn Atkins, President of the Conference, and Vice
President Ms Ruby Beech will use the weblog to share their thoughts
during their year of office.
Martyn and Ruby began adding blog entries after the Methodist Conference in mid-July. Martyn says, "One of the most important tasks for the President and Vice President is to talk and listen to people. We will do this by speaking to individuals and groups and by travelling widely and our regular columns in the Methodist Recorder, but now we can add the weblog to this list as well."
Ruby adds "John and Charles Wesley travelled thousands of miles on horseback to meet people, and those meetings were often quite noisy and challenging. This weblog will allow us to discuss things with people all over the world, and to share our experiences. There are many weblogs by Methodists - both individuals and groups - and by people from other churches, but this is the first time that the President and Vice President have tried this."
