A Post About A Talk About Myself (and Social Media)

Tonight I am going to be speaking to a group of men…

…about 40 of them.

What was the subject about which I was asked to speak?

Social Media!

More specifically, how I’ve used it and how I’m using it now to promote and further the ministry.

Hmmm. What could I say?

Let me think…

  1. We are here for such a time as this.
  2. Social media is a tool. And like all tools, it can either be used for good or evil.
  3. If you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the comment sections.
  4. What you write is eternal.
  5. You don’t have to be famous or have a huge following to make a difference.
  6. Don’t let it consume you.
  7. Christian bloggers are internet missionaries, so treat every article, post, or tweet as a ministry opportunity.
  8. Don’t bury your talent.
  9. Every open door and window is one that can be closed at any moment.
  10. Pray before you post.

Well, there ya go! I think I’ll just use that as my outline for tonight. What do you think?

Heck, each one of those points could be a blog post! 😉

In the meantime, enjoy some gratuitous pictures of my granddaughter, Emma. She’s ONE!

  1. I have tried to use the comment section on New Sites to post random comments and my Moniker draws the Atheist hardliners. I have built up a UTube with relevant videos and a list of favorite web pages as long as my arm for sharing in ministry.
    So, today, there was an Article on the Edmonton News website about the homeless. And because I have written about it and its on my website, I could just link them to the site. If they get curious I have about 50 different Ops they can look at, a free online bible, links to christian sites and a link to my Utube.
    Even when I stopped posting Ops there where people coming to my site all month.
    No I am not that good. And I have just started the website so I only have 30 followers.
    I did an Op called stop cutting yourself. 16 people read it. IF just one person, maybe two grasped what I said, their lives would be totally changed. In that case I am literally saving lives. They key was, If others are down on you or you feel you can express yourself, cutting is joining their team and acting against yourself. At the very least you should be on your own side. Your value is not about them, the pressure to feel free actually didn’t get removed, Problems do not go away by cutting. You are piling on yourself. And you deserve better than that.

    Anyways, Christ came to us because we lost our way. He calls us to be like him and help others who have lost their way. its that simple, take some time to help.

    • Yes it did! Thanks! Some of the comments were things like, “That was fascinating!” and “What you said really spoke to me” and “I never knew the statistic was that high – that’s scary (talking of pornography).” One pastor even said, “I’ve been thinking of starting a blog, so I might be giving you a call to talk about it.”
