@vickybeeching Engaging with people is the church’s business, and if it takes the media to do it, then we should not fear. #cmn12Richard Littledale
Church of England invented the ‘Big Tent’ philosophy. Bring as many people together as possible. Hence bishops’ reticence to speak #cmn12russ bravo
@vickybeeching of course Clare Rayner is someone to aspire to 😉 #cmn12 we need to do it as well as poss, but not be put off engagingDigital Fingerprint
@vickybeeching think u know what I think? #cmn12 Clare Rayner once said ‘if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing’ …Digital Fingerprint
Do you think the Church should be keen to engage with media, or shy away from it to avoid misrepresentation? What do u think Tweeple? #cmn12Vicky Beeching
#cmn12 very impressed at lack of notes by @giles_fraser … Clearly passionate about what he talking about…Digital Fingerprint
Hope everyone has a great time at #cmn12. I went to #cmn10 in the academy. Excellent training from all the team thereSam Pratt
#cmn12 it’s ok to talk about religion, politics & sex at dinner parties – because they’re topics people are passionate about?Digital Fingerprint
English Civil War brutalised the nation. Religion that came after it was to be mistrusted if it was passionate. #cmn12russ bravo

Hiding behind spin doctors and lawyers was partly why #occupy was such a PR disaster for St Paul’s says Giles Fraser at #cmn12Joe Ware
“The Church is so afraid of media, so defensive, as if it has a target on its back all the time. Why?” asks @giles_fraser #cmn12Vicky Beeching
"The fear of the media can distort the way church works and deliberates" says @giles_fraser #cmn12Jennifer Walters
@Hels_Bels_1 excellent ;-)Digital Fingerprint

Bishops can’t say anything interesting to the media because
they’re afraid – and maybe they’re right to be so #gilesfraser #cmn12russ bravo
#cmn12 work it out what it is you believe/what you stand for, and then work out how best to transmit that message .. amen!Digital Fingerprint
#cmn12 interesting @giles_fraser found himself ‘leading the peasant’s revolt’ at St Paul’s because of the way of the media is representedDigital Fingerprint
#cmn12 be great to network whilst being part of the academy. I have a passion for people, podcast/ radio, digital media & Children’s workHelen Nicholls

@richardlittleda @Giles_fraser @drbexl #cmn12 – I’d love to think it was conversation – how do we ensure people know who to listen toDigital Fingerprint
#cmn12 @Giles_fraser @drbexl Is broadcast or conversation a more biblical model for gospel sharing, I wonder?Richard Littledale
