Two new blogs in the Diocese of Maine

The episcopalmaine presence on the blogsosphere is growing again!

We welcome two new blogs:

Maine’s Campus Missioner, the Rev. Shirley Bowen has started a new blog about campus ministry in Maine. It is a place for young adults to find “ideas and meaning-making on Maine’s campuses.” Everyone interested in this ministry is welcome to visit and share in the conversation.

Visit it at

At the New England Deacons Conference in October 2010: Linda Cappers, Trinity, Saco; Audrey Delafield, St. Alban's, Cape Elizabeth; Sudie Blanchard, St. George's, York Harbor; and Christine Bennett, S. Mary, Falmouth

Another new presence on the web is an online, interactive version of a newsletter for the community of deacons that has been around in print and by email for many years: The Deacon’s Bench. With 41 deacons active in congregations, they need a place to share their stories and good company.

Other blogs include:

NNE – The New Northeast (where you are right now!). It offers late-breaking news, events, and links about the Diocese of Maine

Round Maine with Bishop Lane – Bishop Steve’s blog about his visits and travels around the diocese and the wider church.

Resourcefully Yours – reflections and resources on Christian education and formation

Justice and Mercy ME – information and links to encourage and empower people of all faith traditions to join in the battle to end domestic poverty here in Maine.

There is one more that will remain a bit dormant for awhile yet, but we wanted to register it to grab an awesome web address. That is Mainers in Indianapolis – the blog about the the Diocese of Maine’s presence at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church set for July 2012. You can visit at
