New denominational blogs and websites.

The reporters and editors of the Episcopal Church's Office of Communication have launched a blog called epiScope:

Mostly we'll track references to the Episcopal Church in online media ... provide links to full documentation and source material ... do a little "rumor control" where it's needed ... provide a moderated forum for public discussion of substantive issues raised by stories and opinion pieces... and provide a way for the wider Episcopal Church, the Anglican Communion, and the general online public to interact more directly with ENS and Episcopal Life writers and others at the Episcopal Church Center in New York and on the road.

Its blogroll features blogs from the church's left, right, and center.

The United Methodist Church, meanwhile, launched its brand spankin' new website last Monday. It's powered by the content management and constituent management software Kintera, which powers lots of non-profit and advocacy organizations. It also uses lots of Flash.

And, if you haven't checked out i.UCC, the online community set up by the United Church of Christ for newcomers especially, it's worth seeing how they're supporting social networking in the context of an educational website. (It's part of the denomination's multiyear Still Speaking campaign.)

What other developments are you noticing?

Apparently the i.ucc website has a cool design but it is not updated very often. It still shows the "Advent and Christmas season" in the headlines...
