LJWorld.com weblogs Faith Files
Welcome to Faith Files
Stories that deal with faith often are among the stories with the most comments on LJWorld.com.Dozens of readers typically post comments to the Faith Forum. And this week, a story about the Pope Benedict XVI's assertion that non-Catholic churches didn't represent true Christianity generated nearly 140 comments in the first two days it was posted.The comments often cover the spectrum of religious - and non-religious - beliefs. Starting today, the Journal-World is tapping into that interest by starting a new blog, Faith Files, which will look at issues of faith, spirituality, morals and ethics.The blog, which will be updated several times weekly by religion beat writer Terry Rombeck, will cover topics such as:¢ Local faith news, including the lighter side of religion.¢ National religion stories, often with comments from locals.¢ Short profiles of locals talking about their beliefs.¢ Faith in popular culture.¢ Additional resources to accompany Journal-World religion stories and the Faith Forum.¢ Thoughts from local experts and others about moral and ethical issues in the news.The blog will serve both to provide information and be a forum for community discussion.Most of all, we need your help. We encourage you to share your comments to our posts.Also, please send news tips and suggestions to Terry Rombeck at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 832-7145.The next installment appears Saturday.
