New Media Communications 2.0: A Great Good Place for the Theological Community
The image of the balcony comes from the Biblical passage where we read of "being surrounded by a cloud of witnesses", and these are the people of the church, future,past, and present, from whom we have learned and experienced growth , and to whom we will leave a legacy and an impression.
Many of these I am actively seeking to contact in some way, directly or indirectly, online. Some of these I have already begun to incorporate and provide links which I am hoping will become an active arena in which people from each of these communities and concerns can call "home", or encourage them to create places of their own ("of their own" and yet still a part of the Web from which they branch out)
No special order to these; just a list of "influences" from modern theologians in their own right, of whom I have read or heard and find to be encouragement, challenge, and liberating.
