Blogging as a tool for spiritual formation

Tim Bednar on blogging as a tool for spiritual formation:

We are a generation of Internet users (not distinguished by age) who view themselves as participants, not consumers. It’s important for pastors to note this transformation from a passive to a participatory congregation. Millions of us do not want pastors to be gatekeepers; but we need pastors who foster spiritual formation by co-creating the church with us. Bloggers represent the tip of this transformation. Internet users are experiencing the networked church and it is changing them. Soon, we will bring these themes into our local church. I believe this will be the beginning of a grassroots revival not unlike the Charismatic/Pentecostal renewal of the early twentieth century. …What is the role of the pastor in the blogosphere? Pastors should blog (many of us are or were pastors ourselves), but my advice is that pastors join the conversation
