Some discernment over my parish’s communications media in the works for this summer. One of the proposals, which has been dismissed wherever else I’ve ever served, has a surprising ally: incorporating the weekly worship aid into the parish bulletin. Our deacon brought this to me from the cathedral:
In other places, people sitting in other chairs didn’t like the notion. There would be no parting gift for the people as they left church. If the homily was boring, people would read the rest of the bulletin instead of listening.
I’m feeling neutral on this, perhaps surprisingly so.
