Actually, Mark immediately slipped in that it was the ones who had changed the words, the PC brigade, that had made a fuss over nothing. I'm not sure that Steve caught that distinction either.

I downloaded real player on rejected ol' used laptop to hear it. I agree with Steve about not changing the carols...tis disgrace.

Thanks for the heads up to go to 53:30 or so. I started listening to lorrys being attacked by thieves after power was restored to parts of Lancaster or wherever and starting to doze off...but then saw I could fast forward and hear the beloved Steve. Thanks appreciate it.

I can't see if anyone has posted a link to the full page Church Times feature on the 12 Days of Kitchmas - which was a direct lift from (and attributed to) SoF and appears in the non-subscriber bit of the online version as well.

The Ringing World (weekly journal, only headlines from the current week's stories on the website usually) dated 2/1/09 mentions the Ship in its 'From the e-lists' column. Someone on the Truro DG list liked the comments on their ringing in this Mystery Worshipper report.

Good report of Mystery Worshipper in Canada's Christian Week - though (I should point out for accuracy) I have never been an official mystery shopper, only worked with market research organisations that employ them.

Brief mention of 'the other place' (St Pixels) right now on BBC Radio 4, in the 'god.com' programme.

Not sure it the Ship is being mentioned too, as it ain't finished yet. An interesting report in any case, I find.

I just heard that programme too, it was really interesting. I'm really glad that Ship of Fools was there at the start of people trying to make sense of their faith on the internet, and of our experiments in online embodied worship back in the church of fools.

Not quite the mass media, but there's an e-mail discussion for Bishops and Deputies to the Episcopal Church's General Convention. Only Deputies, Bishops, and members of Executive Council or the Church Center staff can post, but anyone who signs up can receive and read the (numerous) posts every day. Most of them belong in Dead Horse territory.

A couple of days ago someone posted a link to this eight-year-old SofF storyand now there have been all sorts of silly replies and suggestions. (I can't re-post them due to the rules, but really, you're not missing much.)

Then I discovered that the Rector of a church in Phoenix apparently subscribes to the General Convention list, because he has now posted the story on Facebook as if it's a new story -- in fact, he refers to it as a "recent story."

The Guardian's Comment is Free site is discussing the future of Thought for the Day. Halfway down the first page, there's a comment from "eleutheria" stating that atheists can discuss theology just as well as theists, including this incisive comment:
quote:
I'm an atheist, and I take an "intelligent general interest" in religion and in theology. I read theological discussions on Ship of Fools for pleasure, I read Donne, Herbert, Vaughan, Traherne, Crashaw. None of these diversions winds me up - except where Ship of Fools discussions turn into a pissing contest between self-declared holders of orthodoxy and those they deem heretics.

Quite a lot about the ship spin off, St Pixels, but he Ship was briefly mentioned in BBC Radio 4's Beyond Belief programme today.

A podcast should be available from the beeb soon.

I hate to double post, but the internet failed and I ran out of edit-time...

I loved the "Cardiff born" bit, only in the Western Mail! [Big Grin]

There is a full-page feature in the Church Times this week (page 19, subscriber only at the mo.) called 'Click your way to church'. It is mainly about i-church, with mentions for Church of Fools, St. Pixels, Anglican Cathedral in Second Life and others. 'Ship of Fools' is shown clearly as a link from the i-church site, so anyone visiting as a result of the article could potentially find their way here.

Chapter and Worse featured on BBC Radio 4's Sunday this morning. Steve Toms was interviewed from Greenbelt and someone else in the studio got to pontificate on how the Bible should have been read. 'Twould have made more sense had they read the Ship's discussions beforehand, because they obviously hadn't.
