Democratic Religion + Democratic Information = SBC Voices
Over the next few months I will be building SBC Voices into the premier web portal to track just about everything Southern Baptists are talking about on the internet. The core content of SBC Voices is the growing number of RSS feeds I’m tracking and aggregating by source, state location and a few other factors.
This project will create the first truly democratic information source for Southern Baptists. The ‘man in the pew’ will have an unprecedented access to all that is being said by Southern Baptists pastors, employees, entities and lay bloggers. All this will be organized by state and other categories. The concept is similar to my other website Said at Southern Semianry, which tracks student, alumni and faculty bloggers from that one institution.
I’ll need your help to expand and refine my database. If you know of a Southern Baptist blogger not listed in my feeds, leave a comment on any page. Here are some rough guidelines for who will be included. Please supply as much information as you can when you submit a site.
- The blog or website’s content must be mainly written by a member of a Southern Baptist Church.
- The website owner must have their first and last name clearly displayed on the website.
- I need to know which state the blogger’s church is located in.
- I need to know if the person is a local church pastor (or staff member), entity employee or lay blogger.
- I will not list blogs that offer no constructive information. Dissenting opinions will not be censored at SBC Voices, but I don’t want to spread slander.
Another way you can help is to let me know if any of the blogs I list are in the wrong category or in violation of these guidelines.
Stay tuned. I expect the site to be ready for promotion by February.
