"Jim Naughton, the diocese’s canon for communications and advancement is resigning on December 11 to form Canticle Communications, a strategic communications consulting firm focused on churches and faith-based advocacy groups, Bishop John Bryson Chane announced last month.
Naughton, the founding editor of the Web site Episcopal Café will continue to work for the diocese as a consultant."
Episcopal Cafe is an amazing production of a whole community of participants but the idea for Episcopal Cafe grew from the mind of Gentleperson Jim Naughton, who wanted to see the blogsphere used to its very best advantage for the faith community of The Episcopal Church. It will continue, hopefully with Jim's continued consultation.
Meanwhile Jim is off to a new land, the land of "strategic communications consulting," whatever that is. If he gives up writing there will be hell to pay. So, Jim, DON'T.
And, by the by, God bless you, Jim, in all you do.
