first church of twitter [part 2]

Twitter Church of TwitterYesterday, I asked you for your opinions about “twittering” during an actual church service.  And wow, it generated some incredible dialogue.  I was almost inspired to do that tweetup or whatever you call it and sing kum ba yah together.  Again, I’m a fan of Twitter but like many things, feel like we need to consider some boundaries such as its usage during and through church. I don’t have much more to add but wanted to share some of the stimulating comments for your consideration and engagement. If you’ve got the time, read through all the comments from the post.  

I’m thinking that soon, some “innovative church” is going to be the first to start the “First Church of Twitter” and then go Multi Site Video Twitter Venues.  It’s possible because anything’s possible…

Here’s some sample comments:

One of the most stimulating comments I’ve ever read from Daniel Azuma about Facebook, Twitter and ecosystems:

Okay, I’m going to have to go on a rant here.

Pastor Eugene: you made a comment on Twitter vs Facebook that seems directed squarely at people like me (who come in and out of Facebook with some trepidation but avoid Twitter like the plague), and I think I need to address it.

17.5 Year Anniversary!
We still got it. We look gooooood!

Blessed to be back in Princeton, NJ for couple days recently. We had our wedding ceremony in Korea but got "legally" married in the US at Miller Chapel in Princeton Seminary. So, it was only fitting to go back and have my kids take our 17.5 Anniversary  pics. Someday when our kids become adults and they feel like their parents wronged them or neglected them, and they feel like they need to get counseling... I'm going to show them this picture and say, "I HAVE PROOF. WE TOOK YOU TO NYC AND BOUGHT TICKETS TO WICKED ON BROADWAY!" RIP Robin Williams. 
Folks: Please go and - call or hug your loved ones. Tell them you love them. Remind them how you much appreciate them.

We need to (re)learn how to be more human. Don't avoid eye contact. Don't hide behind gadgets. Smile often - both to neighbors and strangers alike. Ask about peoples' stories. And listen.

And most importantly, remind yourself that YOU are loved. Not just merely by your loved ones but also by the ONE who created all that is good and beautiful. Dang. The bright lights of NYC. 
Having been a youth pastor in Flushing between 1992-1994, I really miss this place.

Empire State of Mind. Smitten my NYC. There's no place like this city in the world. The Statue of Liberty. "Give me your tired, your poor..."
