From the Londodn Telegraph-
Given that they follow the teachings of someone who lived 2,000 years ago, revere a book filled with "thou shalt nots" and worship in some of the country's oldest buildings, one could be forgiven for assuming that Church of England bishops are not keen on all things new and fashionable.
Certainly there are some innovations they resist, most notably in the vexed areas of human sexuality and equality of opportunity for women.
But when it comes to new technology and embracing the power of the internet to get their message across, they are getting surprisingly close to the cutting-edge.
Not that long ago I treated a text message from an Anglican primate as a real novelty.
But now we've got blogging bishops by the dozen, Facebook groups for all denominations and even the Pope has a YouTube channel. The appointment of the new Bishop of St Albans has already been announced on the video-sharing website, and it seems increasingly likely that a film clip of white smoke emanating from the Vatican will herald the next pontiff.
