New Blogging Series?

by Lon on September 30, 2009

Our Journey through Acts has come to a conclusion. Is there a new series that people would like to explore together? A different book of the bible? something topical? I’m open for anything you’re intrigued by or struggle with. As always the more participation the better!

We’re Twittering!

by Lon on September 30, 2009

Ok, I just set up a twitter account for our community, http://twitter.com/mosaicbaptist

I’m sure you’ve all heard of it if you’re not already on it. Is it just a fad? possibly, but it’s a current medium for communication, and I’m open to ‘all means possible’ as the apostle paul declared.

Very basically for our purposes – it’s a short communication channel – you can think of it as a micro-blog that gets distributed to your twitter client (desktop appilcation, mobile phone / device, etc). There are many other uses for it, but we’ll keep it at that for now.

99% of people just don’t ‘get it’ and it’s something that needs to be used for a period of time with a decent network of people to actually see the value of it. We’ll give it a try here, if it doesn’t work out, that’s fine too, and it can just be a one-way broadcast medium. If you’d rather not try one more techy thing out there, you can always also view the latest 3 ‘tweets’ in the sidebar on the blog here.

Here’s an interesting post on why churches should not twitter – if you’re wondering or have apprehensions.

Otherwise, you can sign yourself up at http://twitter.com
You can ‘follow’ our church community at http://twitter.com/mosaicbaptist
You can follow me personally at http://twitter.com/lon

See you on the flip-side.
