C of E tweeting for Lent

You may have noticed that I have signed up on Twitter. (See twitterings on right of page). This has a number of "benefits" ...

I can bombard the mildly-interested with a stream of details about my (in)activities!

I can appear to be updating my blog with something approaching regularity (!!)

I can appear to be busy, and even "in touch" with new developments on the Web!

Appearances, as we know, can be defective.

But the point of mentioning Twitter is that it is just one of the means the Church of England is using this year to promote its "Love Life, Live Lent" campaign. If you would like to keep Lent by doing "simple acts of generosity and thoughtfulness", take a look at this from the CofE website.

Church gives out 'tweets' for Lent explains how you can take part using Twitter, Facebook etc - or just go to the "Love Life, Live Lent" website.

Time I looked busy again!

Quote of the day

The blog is in danger of gathering cobwebs again - what my son calls "a cobWebsite", so ...

Along the lines of "the person who never made a mistake never made anything", here is a quotation I happened across, which develops the theme:

β€œIt is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”

J K Rowling, speaking at Harvard University.
