I was delighted to be approached by the RSCM to write an article for them on Social Media and Worship.
If you are a subscriber to their CMQ (Church Music Quarterly) the magazine is available to you. If not, some of their content is available online, but not this piece (as far as I know). If you can zoom in on small print, you might be able to read some of the article below, to whet your appetite and encourage you to consider subscribing to CMQ in future!
Hope you enjoyed the piece.
I love that social media and technology are becoming more and more popular topics of discussion amongst Church folks. Let’s keep the discussions happening and really wrestle with the questions about how digital technology can help and hinder our expressions of worship.
Have you and your Church given much thought to your use of social media (websites, blogging, Twitter, Facebook etc) as a community? How has social media helped your Church community?
Has it caused any problems? Do you like people using smart phones in Church for things like Twitter? Do you see this as building community, or just a distraction? These are crucial questions for the church to be asking.
