Tweet up and catch the spirit

Tuesday evening marked a new era in the Episcopal Church as many attending the joint meeting of Committees, Commissions, Agencies and Boards (aka CCAB) in St. Louis. Episcopal Café editor Jim Naughton and his co-author Rebecca Wilson and others led a Tweet Up. Those present in the room and those attending remotely (including 3-4 bishops) found a high level of energy and engagement in social media and getting the word out about the Episcopal Church. Read the Twitter feed (from bottom to top) below and catch the spirit.

Tonight (Wednesday) there will be an #undergroundeucharist. Check #CCAB in Twitter to follow the meeting. Today many shared discussions from the meetings. Great way to find out the work of our representatives and Deputies.
