  • Devo'Zine - A devotional magazine designed for youth
  • As the Internet has grown in popularity, blogs have emerged on nearly every subject imaginable, including Methodism. What is a blog? "Blog" is short  for "weblog". It is a journal (or newsletter) that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. The personality of the author or the Web site is generally evident in the blog, which is generally personal and conversational in nature.

    Blogs can also serve as a forum for dialogue around burning issues that face people. Several UMC Bishops now use blogs to communicate with their conferences (e.g.
    Bishop Willimon).

    Here are some Methodist and other Christian blogs that maybe be of interest. If you would like to suggest a blog for this list,
