At the start of the sermon, Bishop Kirk Smith asked everyone present to do the opposite of what we are usually told to do with our technology. Instead of silencing our phones and putting them away, Bishop Smith asked us all to take them out and text, twitter, IM or FB the people we are connected with where we were, what we were doing and invite our friends to come and see.

It was a truly beautiful service!

There has been live tweeting from other consecrations, but social media has probably never been as central to a consecration as this one.

Ann Fontaine

Is this the first tweeted consecration- do we need a new word? Twitterization?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
