Shaun King pastor of Courageous Church in Atlanta has been asking for donations on twitter/facebook for their big give to raise 290 school uniforms and a present for every kid at a school in Atlanta. They accomplished that mission. Read about it here and watch it below:
Man I cried like a baby when they opened the gifts! So glad I got to participate in that. I didn’t give much – but look at what God can do when a few people give a very little. I don’t regret sending $10 bucks, but perhaps you regret not sending something? I say that to encourage you to give, not to make you feel bad. Next time your faced with an opportunity to give don’t hold back and end up regretting it!
Ever since I was 8 or so I can remember having a computer in the house. Now for today’s culture, that’s no big deal at all, nothing special. However, in 1986 or so that was rare. I’m thankful my grandfather wanted me to have one so that I could get started on one at an early age. I have always been obsessed with technology and computers.
That is one of the reasons I love twitter. I remember being a kid and going on a trip and meeting people and being sad because we would never hear from each other again. That doesn’t happen now. Now you share IM screennames, twitter each other, read blog posts, follow on facebook/myspace. The world is a much smaller place now.
Watch this video about Ashton Kutcher, twitter, and Malaria. There is a line that he says that I loosely quote, “now we are in a time where a single person can have as large of a voice as huge news network.” I am thankful that we have this technology. I know a lot of traditional churches fight technology, but those same churches are usually the ones that circle up and show their butts to the world. How is it wrong when people are genuinely coming to Christ through technology. Just look here, here, and/or here. Amazing stories of Christ at work through technology. Especially this video. God’s hands and feet are being shown to the World through twitter.
So watch this video then ask yourself, “What message does God want me to share with the World?” (literally… the world)
If for some reason you have never heard of Newspring or Unleash and you haven’t seen/heard Perry Noble preach, then I wanted to open your eyes to some awesomeness. Below you’ll find the two main sessions from Unleash. Also go to the website for downloadable (and FREE) pdf’s from the breakout sessions! ENJOY! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
It’s an absolute necessity. Love this video from Craig and Lifechurch. I know for my life have had a lot of failures and successes. The failures have always led to something great or learning something big from it.
