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 »

Do small things with great love. Think simple. Not spectacular. C'mon! We still got it.

#19YearsAndGoingStrong Grateful for the life and leadership of Dr. John M. Perkins. There are alot of sprinters in our culture but make sure to also look for those who are persevering in the marathon of justice and reconciliation. When I think of him and others I consider mentors in my life, they're not necessarily flashy or fancy. Rather, I'm reminded that a life faithfully and honestly lived through life's trials and messiness is one's greatest sermon. The best thing a father can do for their kids...is to care well for their mother. It took me awhile to learn this and I'm still learning this. As a leader, I refuse to sacrifice my marriage and kids for the sake of ministry. How can I? Loving my family IS ministry and leadership.

I acknowledge that I'm so privileged with platform, resources, and opportunities - including the opportunity to travel and take vacations like this trip last month. Its not lost on me. I'm so grateful. I want to steward that privilege well - not just for personal or family enjoyment - but also for the sake of others and the building of the Kingdom of God. 
As I pour into others, I'm also learning how important it is to care for oneself; To care for your spouse; To care for your family; To be about the marathon. Preservation not for the sake of self-preservation but for the sake of discipleship and faithfulness.

I used to feel guilty about Sabbath-ing, vacations for my family, being in the outdoors, fishing, and self-care but it's too important  As a lifelong recovering workaholic, I don't want to burn out and I don't want this for others. Flying in and out of Seattle never gets old. One of the most mesmerizing topographies in the country. #windowseat Thank you, Chicago. Put in 10,000 steps. Still one of the best cities to walk.
