A week from Sunday I am teaching a Sunday School class on the topic: Surfing the God Blogs--Blogging as Ministry. This is in the way of a trial run for a workshop on the same topic that I've been asked to give in a workshop this fall at our presbytery's annual leadership and educational training event. I'm working on a powerpoint presentation because I am sure that many in the class are not familiar with blogs and will need the visual aid.
Since I've only been blogging for about three months, I'd love some comments from those of you with more experience writing a faith-based blog.
What would you include in a class like this?
How does your blog integrate with your total ministry?
What were your expectations when you began the blog and have they been met or changed by your experience?
Has anyone set up a blog to use in conjunction with a study group? For example, using a group blog as a way for people in a Bible study to reflect on the current readings before or after their face-to-face meeting.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
