Why?

Many People Ask…Why Bother With Social Media At Church?

Obviously…

-Moses wasn’t using TripAdvisor to find a nice, reasonable hotel in the desert
-Martha wasn’t on Pinterest looking up recipes to serve Jesus
-David wasn’t posting his latest psalms to his YouTube Channel
-Jesus wasn’t live tweeting events (although all the Beatitudes are 140 characters or less, making them perfectly suited for Twitter!)

However, our faith has gone viral since the very beginning. Paul might not have had a smartphone, but he used the social media of his time: Epistles, which continue to spread throughout the world today.
