Learned from Twitter: week ending June 6, 2009


Like most weeks, there was a lot to learn from Twitter this week. Here is just a sample of the goodness I took away…

1. uthministerman (Jasper Rains) reminded us of the importance of rest.

“And God said, “Let there be Sunday Naps,” and there were Sunday Naps and they were good.”

2. MarkMatlock (Mark Matlock) thinks if you use personal illustrations in your messages, make sure they are true – all the time. Don’t use someone else’s or make one up just to prove a point. A reminder to any of us who communicate. Be authentic.

“a pastor saying “true story” after an illustration implies some are not true. It’s like a magician saying “i have an ordinary deck of cards””

3. crowderband (Davide Crowder*Band) is going to be on tour, pick up your tickets.

“be the first to get your fall crowder tour tickets, available NOW @ http://www.sixstepstickets….

4. YMTV (Dennis Poulette) offers this link to a few tips for youth workers. If you are in youth ministry or know someone who is, you need to take a look at this list.

“Reading 45 tips for youth workers – http://bit.ly/94O7N

5. DougFields (Doug Fields) offers a link to a video he thinks you all need to watch.

“Somehow this video seems fake, but I know the editor & it’s real–real AMAZING. Guys will love it: http://tinyurl.com/nqf89r

6. rainnwilson (Rainn Wilson) linked to an interesting discussion on SoulPancake about explaining God in less than 10 words.

“What God IS or ISN’T in 10 Words or less. http://tinyurl.com/qdyqph

And then he followed it up with this retweet:

“Nice! RT @giannajessen Faithful, Savior of a girl who limps, comic, mysterious, Lord.

7. 3DGomers (Third Day Gomers) let us know about a photo contest over on the forums. Follow the link to find out more info – some really cool prizes for the winners (if you are a Third Day fan, which you should be, btw)

“Photography Contest – Win art prints by @JasonMitchener! Grand prize: Third Day Retro Pack! All can enter! More here: http://www.Gomers.net
