Learned from Twitter: Week ending June 27, 2009

This is the first full week of summer and for the youth worker that means not being in the office. That was noticed this week on Twitter, as many days were low on the tweeting by friends. I can only hope this means a lot of ministry was done with teenagers. Anyway, here are a few things I learned this week…

1. jenhowver (Jen Howver) shared an article on conducting surveys.

“an ingenious way to conduct a survey (& probably get a good grade on your research project!): http://bit.ly/xtxfV

2. ellerytheband (Ellery) has been sharing thoughts on what is going on in the studio. A new album is coming. If you do not know Ellery, check out their music – its good.

“Several times through “Christopher,” and a new idea w/ each try. Finally have an arrangement we’re living with; feels good.”

3. MarkMatlock (Mark Matlock) passed along an article on teens and sex. If you work with teenagers, you’ll want to check out this article.

“Teens Just as Likely to Have Sex, But Less Likely to Use Contraception Than They Were A Few Years Ago http://tinyurl.com/m5mp8o

4. outsideallday (Andy Brazelton) announced a brand new small group curriculum from Simply Youth Ministry. The Live curriculum is a downloadable 4 year curriculum that is easily customizable to fit your group. (I am honored to have been able to contribute a few of the lessons for this curriculum and hope they challenge students to live for God)

“Drum roll please…after several years in development, check out our brand new 4 year small group curriculum plan. http://budurl.com/bwaf

5. FlowerInTheRain (Janelle Painter) passed along some sad truth about Apple and the iTunes App store. They are now allowing porn in their apps, which means I am disappointed in Apple.

“RT @kcampos: Porn is now allowed on the iTunes App Store, because 3.0 has age restriction ability. http://is.gd/1daEV // such a shame Apple”
