Social Media for Faith is my attempt, as an online teacher who has had to get to grips with Social Media, to give some of what I have learnt to the Church. I am motivated by seeing excellent endeavours which are poorly supported.
Social media is even more about being social than it is about classy media. Your videos will stop and buffer in rural New Zealand. Your low-tech comment can still warm a heart – be social first. Be the welcome your faith needs to send. You don’t even need to be the blogger, the group administrator or the page admin. Your response to someone else’s work can make it into a welcoming conversation that seekers can join, and that faithful people with flat batteries can be recharged by.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. ~ Matthew 18:20
Our social media efforts must be supported by twos and threes who gather and actively respond in order to bring the warmth and comfort of faith to the silent visitor.
