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.

Facebook is a highly complex platform-oriented ecosystem that functions Read the rest of this entry »

Aloha. Mahalo. Hana hou. Ohana.

Thank you, Kona, the Whitlocks, YWAM, sea turtles, Nemo, Restorers DTS, and Scandinavian Shaved Ice. Our three children.

One will be heading off to college in one year. The 2nd in three years. In six years, Minhee and I will be empty nesters. As a young parent, my prayers for them often surrounded their purpose in life. While I still ponder those things, there are three things that I most pray for:

1. That they may love Christ and obey Christ. Not just the idea but to actually follow Christ and thus, to love people.

2. To hold God's Word - the Holy Scriptures - dear and near to their hearts.

3. To love one another and be there for one another for life. To be loyal to one another. To protect one another. To never allow pettiness, conflicts, jealousy,  money, or whatever to get between them in the future. Ever. 
May it be so. Amen. Kona sunset. #nofilter

Perhaps from the outside...things look great but this has been one of the most challenging years of our life. The most painful has involved one of our kids who've had to endure through a lifelong chronic illness. This year, we've gone to the hospital 3-4 times/week trying to get her better. Ups and downs. Emotional roller coaster. Parents will understand this but nothing hurts more than a sick child...especially when you can't "fix" the situation. We were praying that our trip to Hawaii would be a balm for her soul...but it has been hard. Really hard. Lots of tears hard. But soaking in this sunset with our kids is something we don't want to take for granted.

We continue to pray and hope. Hope is not that God promises us perfection or everything we want but that in all situations...God is with us. Believing - while faltering - in this truth for our child.
