Call for Papers: Synchroblog on Christianity and the environment

A group of Christians from around the world are planning a "synchroblog" on Christianity and the Environment, which may be of particular interest to Christian members of SAFCEI.

The is a monthly synchronised posting by a group of Christian (mostly) bloggers, who blog on the same general theme on the same day, with links to one other’s posts.

Anyone can join in, and if you would like to take part, just let Phil Wyman know a couple of days beforehand. He will need to know (1) Your name, (2) The URL of your blog and (3) the Title of your post. If you can give the URL for your actual synchroblog post, so much the better.

There is also a Synchroblog Mailing List. It is worth subscribing to it if you plan to participate regularly in the synchroblogs, since it is where we discuss what topic to have each month and when to actually post. If you want to see what synchroblog posts look like, click here for a list of previous synchroblog posts.

This post is a “Call for papers”, and not the actual synchroblog posting itself. When it is available, I’ll add the list of links to the posts below.

When you post, people in Australasia and east Asia should post on the evening of the 16th. People in Europe and Africa should post about midday, and people in the Americas should post in the morning. That should get things more or less synchronised.

I'm not sure how many members of SAFCEI have their own blogs (if any do, it would be nice to have links to them here) but I am sure that all will be welcome to participate in this month's synchroblog. Though most of the members of the synchroblog group are Christian, non-Christians have participated in the past, and I'm sure all bloggers who are SAFCEI members would be welcome to participate as well.
