We as Christians are missing opportunities, not just daily, but moment by moment. How do we respond to a culture that is becoming less relational in the physiosocial world, and much, MUCH more open online? I think we can all admit that the days of door-to-door evangelism are gone. I’m not talking about positively effecting your community by actually being a good, available neighbor, but the hand-you-some-paper-and-hope-for-the-best evangelism that is still a mainstay of Jehovah’s Witness and the Mormons. Surely I’m not the only one who NEVER answers the door?

I’m a nerd. I’m comfortable with that. This website is a space for me to write about anything really, but I’m most interested in pursuing the mashup of technology and spiritual formation, that leads to deeper spiritual transformation. While we could quickly build a list of technologies downfalls, I’m interested in embracing technology (I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon) and dreaming of what new methods we can pursue for sharing Jesus with people. This series of posts is about just that. It’s evolving at it’s own pace, and it isn’t mean to be some sort of master list that we all must do, but rather a handful of things I find myself contemplating for where I’m currently at. They may not all jive with you, but hopefully the thought process and mental framework will, and you’ll be pushed into some new areas of thinking.
Here’s what’s fresh out of the oven:
And here’s a list of things I’ve yet to finish writing about:
- The Mormon’s Will Win – Disunity and ignorance in the body
- We’re getting killed creatively: Modern Media Design (Vimeo)
- Slamming Doors: 7 annoying things you can do online to kill opportunities for Jesus (Facebook)
- Utilizing Connections: Inviting people into your spiritual life (Online Prayer)
What other areas of technology are we missing out on?
