The Blog at One

This is a sight seen increasing often at the Cathedral over the past 12 months: a priest with a camera! The reason, of course, is the Blog, which is one year old today. Curiously, this is also the 144th posting, a number which, in the Scriptures, signifies completeness. There is much to look forward to over the next twelve months, however, particularly as the Cathedral's 150th anniversary draws near. In recent weeks there seems to have been a surge of interest in the Blog, brought on by Bishop Campbell's ordination, and it has certainly proved to be an effective way for many people to gain access to the wonderful pictures that were taken. There is a more long-term benefit, however. As the 150th draws near, it is increasingly clear how little record exists of Cathedral life over the decades. Whether or not the Blog proves to be a long-term venture, it will at least provide a good photographic and written record of this period in the life of the Cathedral.
