  1. MichaelA says:

    My apologies for putting this post here, its a bit off topic. I saw an article on T19 around New Years Day, but can’t find it now. I was in the outback of Australia and couldn’t reply at the time. Fr Terry Tee and Pageantmaster both commented on the decline in Anglican blogs. I will throw my two cents worth in here, if permitted:

    1. Fr Tee wrote something about the fork in the road being passed and I agree. TEC’s decline isn’t news any more and most faithful people are out of it.

    2. But there is another story, a positive one, about the re-establishment of Anglicanism in North America, independently of TEC. Its the story of ACNA, Dio SC and the Continuum churches (apologies if I have missed out on anyone). It is the story of pastors, new churches (often struggling), evangelists, seminaries, and difficult cultural challenges.

    3. I suspect there is the potential to build just as much interest in this positive story as there was in the previous negative story. The task after all is immense and varied – Anglicanism has practically disappeared from many areas of North America and Great Britain with the declines of TEC, ACoC and CofE, and its now missionary work to re-establish it.

    4. This is in context of my belief that Anglicanism is a vibrant denomination with a great deal to offer to Christianity today. The intellectual and theological potential is huge, and this should be highlighted on the internet.

    5. As a reminder, although Stand Firm now rarely carries Anglican articles, I can remember when an article there about Anglican doctrine and the direction in which Anglicanism should be headed could attract over 500 comments. That is an extreme example, but its a reminder that its just a matter of finding the relevance.

    6. Titus One Nine has a separate technical issue: It only has a single column for articles on its front page, and the articles cycle through so quickly that nobody gets time to absorb them. They are usually gone from the front page in a day. “Sticky posts” don’t really help because they just reduce the space available for the other articles, hence they cycle through even more quickly. If you want comment and to build an online community, then an article should sit on the front page for several days at least.

    7. Two ways for T19 to deal with this, in my humble submission: (a) Find someone to re-configure the page, with main articles, a cache where older articles are still visible even when not recent, and side spaces or links where articles on particular interest areas can go; and (b) reduce the number of articles.

    I hope this is helpful, and wherever the Lord leads each of you, may your ministry be blessed.

  2. Katherine says:

    At this point it appears T19 is lucky to be up and running normally. Stand Firm is still not quite fixed, since the “recent comments” column doesn’t work, and Midwest Conservative Journal (on the same server, I think) is frozen, not being updated and not accepting comments.

  3. MichaelA says:

    Hi Katherine, thanks, good points.

    I wouldn’t call Midwest Conservative Journal an Anglican blog. It’s a political blog done from a Christian viewpoint. Of course it refers to matter going on in the various churches, including Anglicans, but that is just consequential to the main issue which is politics.

    By contrast, an Anglican blog will be focussed mainly on church issues (and mainly but not always Anglican), but of course will cover related political issues from time to time. Obvious examples are Virtue Online, Anglican Ink and Anglican Down Under (I am not saying I necessarily agree with each of them, but just talking about the type of blog they are). A similar one from a reformed viewpoint is The Gospel Coalition. Sure they cover political issues, but the primary focus is on church issues, mainly (but not always) Anglican.

    Stand Firm was an Anglican blog up until after Greg Griffiths left. Its now far more like MCJ – the articles are mainly on US political issues from a Christian perspective. It still does some Anglican content. The last Anglican article was back in October,

    A Christian political blog like MCJ or SF is a worthy thing, but my comments above referred to an Anglican blog, which it appears to me that T19 has always been.

    And I hope that the main focus of my comments, i.e. that articles on Anglican blogs could highlight the positive and practical side of Anglican growth and renewal, will not be overlooked.

  4. Katherine says:

    You are quite right about the natures of those sites, MichaelA. T19 is on the same server, as I understand it, and the other two (of which I know) which are technically related have suffered serious damage from some kind of virus or hack.

  5. Luke says:

    I just now noticed the line saying 4 Comments…seemingly without a connection to a post, article, or subject. Being curious, I tapped in.

    My exposure to Anglican blogs is limited, by choice, to Mr. Haley’s Curmudgeon, and T 1,9.

    Haley’s space offers links to numerous others, as most of us know, but there is such a choice, that even with his guidance, for me it’s over complicated.

    I used to read David Virtue, but don’t anymore, for a couple of reasons I won’t express here.

    That pretty much leaves me T 1,9 for my news source on Anglicanism. I look at it nearly every day to see what’s new here, in the UK, and in Africa, and I’m happy with it as a source. Long may it continue.

    As an 84 year-old cradle Episcopalian originally, and truly uneducated in church history or background (of course I remember Spong, Pike, and others), since 2003, I/we have followed the path that has led us to found a tiny ACNA parish in a small town in Kentucky -formerly Stacy Sauls territory, in which we were some of his victims. As an aside, isn’t it iironic that ECUSA now has to defend itself against Sauls’ Alabama-filed law suit? Haley is convinced this will end up being handled in NY.

    Anyway, thanks to our priest and his family, and what we have attained through our membership in +Bill Atwood’s ACNA; Int’l Diocese, we are much happier.

    If a viable Anglican blog appears, and I become aware of it, perhaps I shall follow it as well. For now, I’m just grateful for T 1,9.

  6. Katherine says:

    Luke, you could also look in at [url=http://www.anglican.ink]Anglican Ink[/url]. That site posts articles by George Conger and others, and I note this blog links to it from time to time, and Mr. Haley posts there occasionally too.
