Twittering Away in Church?

Posted by | .

Here’s a Time article on churches that use Twitter and actually encourage members to engage during worship services. image According to the article:

“In Seattle, Mars Hill churchgoers regularly tweet throughout the service. In New York City, Trinity Church marked Good Friday by tweeting the Passion play, detailing the stages of Jesus’ crucifixion in short bursts. At Next Level Church, outside Charlotte, N.C., it’s not only O.K. to fuse social-networking technology with prayer; it’s desirable.

On Easter Sunday, pastor Todd Hahn prefaced his sermon by saying, "I hope many of you are tweeting this morning about your experience with God."

"It’s a huge responsibility of a church to leverage whatever’s going on in the broader culture, to connect people to God and to each other," says Hahn.”
