United Church of Christ launches Web news site.
Guess explained the thinking behind the UCC's move toward Internet news publishing last December. I've been following developments at the UCC because the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations is on a somewhat similar trajectory: The May/June issue of UU World announced the shift from bimonthly to quarterly publication — and introduced plans for an online magazine. Tom Stites wrote:
Issues of our new electronic magazine will be published every week. Each week's issue will offer fresh inspirational material, timely news of UUs and their congregations and institutions, and helpful information for church leaders. And each week's Web magazine will feature either an exclusive Web-only article or an article from the print magazine. There will be a frequently updated feature for UU activists, helping them keep up on what they can do to make a difference. And, if you'd prefer, you won't have to go to the Web magazine—the magazine will come to you. The front page of the Web magazine will offer you an easy way to sign up for weekly e-mails of fresh UU news and other material.
The UUA's transformed online magazine will debut later this summer; watch for the announcement in the Fall 2005 issue. In the meantime, what do you think of the new United Church News?
