The Pope Dives Into Social Networking-What about your church?



Here is a recent article in which the pope encourages priests to use social networking to spread the gospel.

The Pope said, "Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the
latest generation of audiovisual resources -- images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites -- which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelization and catechesis," he said.

If the Pope, who is 82 and no technology buff, is calling on people to use social media, what about us?
How is your church using social media to share the gospel? What help can you offer or do you need?

Many still have not realized the power of social networking. With continued conversations I hope more churches will embrace the present reality. We must meet the people where they are at and as you know a vast majority are on social networking sites. Recently read a blog about a church who spent less than $500 for advertisements on Facebook for their Christmas performance. The results were outstanding. Over 100 people came via the ads and a few have connected with the body and now one family is in a small group.
