Facebook Timeline Is For Visitors

In the church world, there are lots of things we do for the sake of communicating with first-time visitors.  We add snazzy “I’m New Here” buttons to our website.  We create slick brochures as part of a welcome packet.  Now there’s one more thing to add to the list: Facebook Timeline.

New Guide for Church & Web

My name's Jerod Clark and I'm the new guide for the Church and Web network.  There’s something I know to be true: everything communicates something.  So why not be intentional about what you’re saying?

'Til We Meet Again

“How time do fly,” my dad sometimes jokes. It’s been a year since I started as the guide for The Network’s Church & Web section, and I will be saying so long, until we meet again -- which I’m sure we will, right here in The Network.

Do any of you use texting in your church? I think it’s a promising idea. Some churches encourage texting during church services, some use it for sending news, encouragement, prayer requests, whatever information they wish to share.

Going to the Show

When her parents are getting her ready for church, my little 3-year-old granddaughter asks, “Are we going to the show?” That’s what she calls church -- “the show.” At her church, the service is shown via streaming video to the nursery where she goes each Sunday. Makes me wonder, how will “doing church” be different for future generations?

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

An article by Joyce Suh reminds us that being “wired” presents a danger “of gradually cutting ourselves off from the blessing that comes with being face-to-face with another human being and from being face-to-face with God.” As we begin the Christmas season, it is good to remind ourselves of what is the most important in our lives, and to “turn our eyes upon Jesus.”

Thoughtful Use & Non-Use of Technology

I love technology. If you’re reading this blog, you may enjoy it, too. But, even though I appreciate the use of technology, I also appreciate it when people are thoughtful about its use -- or non-use. Opposite decisions about whether or not to use technology can both be "right."

Can technology be a tool to increase your devotion to God? Have you ever signed up for a thought or Bible verse a day? Did it help you spiritually? Have you ever developed or experienced a system using technology to increase your own or others’ devotion?
