"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Wednesday, April 07, 2004 Revealer editor Jeff Sharlet is preparing to moderate a panel discussion on religious blogs at the BloggerCon at Harvard Law on April 17 and asks input:
Where did belief blogs come from and where are they going? How do belief blogs relate to the real world -- as lay ministry, as rebellion, as outsider critique? Do the different Godblogospheres, such as St. Blog's and jBlog, have anything in common -- and anything to learn from each other? Why does online belief tend toward greater political conservatism than the religious print press (or am I wrong in thinking that it does)? Do blogs do a better job of noticing religion in the news than the mainstream press? Are they a force for change within religious institutions? Journalistic institutions?
That's just for starters. Answers welcome. Better questions even more welcome.
Head over to his site and comment. I'll be putting together some thoughts presently.
I may drop by the BloggerCon. Does anyone else in the Boston area plan to attend?
