Website Review: Discerning Hearts
A review based on: http://www.discerninghearts.com
Discerning Hearts is dedicated to evangelization and spiritual formation through new media. Discerning Hearts creates engaging multi-media, specializing in audio productions (known as podcasts and radio broadcasts) faithful to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and it’s rich authentic spiritual tradition. Its mission responds to the Church’s call to use the media for evangelization, catechesis and spiritual renewal.
Thanks to the generosity of its large online community over this past year, Discerning Hearts has grown both the sizes of its audiences and the number of shows it produces. As a ministry, Discerning Hearts makes real contributions to the use of new media in the Catholic Church. Many of their series are produced and formatted so they may used freely on Catholic radio stations (such as the Spirit Catholic Radio Network, it’s “parent” in ministry), as well as, other new media outlets in their various forms allowing broadcasting to occur in it’s “broadest” sense.
In 2011, Discerning Hearts was an invited participant in the first Vatican Bloggers Meeting, held in Rome on May 2nd. Additionally, a new social media strategy gave Discerning Hearts a wider online presence on sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus, allowing it to build a stronger online community and to reach out to the secular world in new ways.
This is a great site to visit. It is both visually attractive and has numerous resources. Join site developer Kris McGregor with today's best authors/teachers/spiritual leaders discussing topicts that effect every day life – from lives of the saints to the basics of Catholic Social teaching and from the Sacred Liturgy to prayer in everyday moments of our lives.
