Tensegrities is a blog I’ve been following for a few months now. The blog is run by Mary Hess, whose name sounded familair to me. After a few minutes of journal-searching I found out why; two of her papers had helped me prepare for the classes I taught in film and religious education at King’s and were on the reading list I submitted for a proposed Theology and Film MA module!

I like the way Mary explains the name of her blog,

“”Tensegrity” is a word Buckminster Fuller once coined — “tension” + “integrity” = “tensegrity.” He used it to describe the incredibly stable nature of the structures he could build by holding competing forces together while respecting their integrities. I like to use it to describe what it is to be a person of faith living in a global media culture.”

Today Mary has picked up the World Council of Churches’ Keeping the Faith website, which is an impressive and inspiring piece of work. Please set aside some time to check it out.

What a strange feeling — I’ve been reading your blog for months now, via a newsreader (and really enjoying it) — what a strange feeling to read it just now and find tensegrities referenced. But thanks!
