Well, this is a first for me. Today, I plan to use this blog as research for a story I’m writing. I know a lot of you out there are far more tech-savvy than I am so I’m seeking advice.
I’m writing a piece for a faith-based magazine about faith and social media. I want to explore how things like twitter or facebook or blogs impact your faith journey (if you have one, that is). I think it’s an interesting dichotomy that more and more churches and religious institutions are using the internet in their evangelical networks yet most churches, at their very core, are about community and coming together in a celebration of faith. I find as believers who use the internet seek a more intimate relationship with God, they’re also seeking and using a more impersonal method of practicing that faith. Do you use social media in your faith exploration? How does technology shape your faith? How does your faith inform how you use social media?
