Not that God is in the computer, although I believe that God can be experienced in a myriad of ways. Specifically, I am thinking about how can blogging, social networking, information sites (like Google, youtube, etc.) give me insight to what God is doing in the world? We know that many (ok almost all) of our 40 and under crowd in our congregations engage media several times a day and our youth don’t know life without it! But I want to explore how I can engage media in a way that can communicate the love and grace of God to those that I have the honor to serve either in a parish or here on-line in my blog! How has media changed ministry for me? How will I keep up and use it in a meaningful way? How can my definition of community expand and blossom through media? These are all topics I want to explore with you all over the next few weeks. One of my main concerns was time: How will I fit one more thing into ministry? I found this seven minute video by Clay Shirky about time usage and social networking on youtube I hope that you enjoy it!
