wrap up for “Finding Jesus on FB” series

Posted in better disciples at 11:36 PM by alexlozada

Throughout MCC’s Sunday message + small group studies alignment, we’ve emphasized that you do NOT need to be a FB user to participate.  Here’s an insightful article on FB and genuine Christian community from a Christianity Today editor who highlights the weaknesses of connecting w/ people online. Christianity Today also posted a more positive “tools approach” to FB and other online resources, entitled “The Technophobe’s Survival Guide”.

From FB itself, a user posts tips specifically for teachers, but a small group leader or church leader can easily adapt the advice for useful ways to connect with fellow members.

If you have observations about either MCC’s recent FB series, or generally about FB (maybe other online resources like Twitter, MySpace, etc.) and Christians, I encourage you to comment on this post. My teammate Ethan Magness already told me about another church to whom MCC is loaning our Finding Jesus on FB resources so they can use for a series next year.
