At the recent meeting of the The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops, the bishops declared Sunday Sept 25th as “Social Media Sunday,” saying “…bring your phones, and other portable devices to Church this Sunday. If there is a hymn, reading, sermon, phrase or visual that catches your eye, or something that catches your imagination, tweet it, post it, instagram it, pinterest it, or let it go viral.” If you do decide to participate use the hashtag #SMS16 so that your efforts can be seen across the whole conversation.
To help with this, the folks at the Acts 8 Movement (who have lately taken to creating the best media tools for evangelism out there) have produced a guide that can also be used as a bulletin insert that offers 15 ways members of your church can use social media to PROCLAIM the good news, ENGAGE your networks, and INVITE others to join you. Feel free to copy/share/reproduce/tweet/anything-that-works for you on social media or on paper. You can download the pdf here. They expect to have a Spanish language version very soon as well
