Tweet up and catch the spirit

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.

The major thanks go to T. J. Freeman (@unbuntuwanderer), who first raised the idea of a tweet-up, and Gay Jennings (@gaycjen), President of the House of Deputies, who facilitated the conversation.

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.
