We are approaching 3,200 fans on Facebook! Overwhelming. Thank you one and all!
Given the week's posts about the Archbishop of Canterbury and backlash about his Pentecost letter, it's probably not surprising to see a group on Facebook pop up called The Archbishop of Canterbury hath no jurisdiction in this Realm. But comments on some of the related posts help keep things in perspective, such as someone invoking the Serenity Prayer to remind us that it's not so much the ABC that matters as listening for (and to) the Spirit. (Thanks, John A.)
On Twitter, you may have noticed that search was down a lot this week. Well, it seems like there's a new functionality in place, that when you search on "episcopalcafe" as one word, that any shortened links that point to the blog appear in the search. As a result, we're seeing more of your comments, such as @PastorDan's recasting of the headline on the Virginia ruling to "Virginia Supreme Court to schismatics: Consider yourself WARNED!!" and another reader's observation on the to baptize or not to baptize post: "This is the silly part of TEC, and why I don't read blogs." This new search functionality is pretty nifty, but it still kicks back an "older posts are not available" error after a few pages. Feh, we say.
