I’ve been thinking of writing about Columbia’s First Church of Christ, Scientist for a while now; I’ve visited the church twice this summer and have spoken with members of the congregation about upcoming events. But I’d rather do something less newsy, and more thematic.

What would people reading this blog and/or the Missourian like to see for coverage in this area?

I was thinking of looking into some of the stereotypes associated with the faith (mainly, a dissociation with anything medical) and getting a view from congregants of the validity of these views. Would this interest any readers?

Thanks for your help!

It took the Rev. Emmanuel Hatzidakis nearly 20 years to find himself studying theology and training to be a priest in the Orthodox Christian Church. But it took much less time for him to start a second career writing. His first book, “The Heavenly Banquet” explains the Divine Liturgy, a crucial element of worship services.
Read more about Hatzidakis and his book, and hear him talk about St. Luke’s Greek Orthodox Church.

Beliefnet blogger Rod Dreher gives his take on whether Silda Spitzer, wife of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer should stay with him. He gives a five-point breakdown on the soon-to-be former governor’s marital situation.

This is one of Beliefnet’s top stories.

As most of the western world know, this story has been a hot topic on all forms of media, with 24-hour television news networks bringing in relationship “experts” to comment.

With this in mind,

Should a high profile religion Web site be analyzing and debating the marital status of an embattled politician and his wife?

I will be introducing a new function called “Reporter’s Notebook” as part of our coverage of the Social Networking Symposim soon.

In the post, I will give detailed commentary and facts and figures that the speakers brought up that might be helpful for the reader looking for more in-depth coverage. Basically, you get some of the highlights from my notebook that may not have made it into the story.

As with any new technique, this is an experiment. I will need your help in deciding whether the information is pertinent and helpful. So let me know if you see something that you would like more information about. Post a comment asking for more details and I will find what you’re looking for and update the site accordingly.
