Twitter Sermons


I have been on Twitter from way back before most people were on twitter.  Twitter is linked to my phone which means I follow a select few of people on my phone.  Of the people who I follow to my “mobile device” several are pastors.   Lately, I have noticed that my inbox is getting awfully full, awfully fast…when I say “awfully” what I really mean is I’m getting a lot of inane Tweets to my phone. 

On the way home tonight, I thought if these tweets were sermons, what would they sound like.  So, without naming any names (to protect the guilty), I thought I would post some of my friends Tweets to see what their Twitter Sermon might be (Their Twitter Message; their Twitter Gospel).  This might be interesting or it might be boring or it might be revealing.

Pastor 1:

This has been an interesting little experiment.  I am now going to edit my mobile updates.  I am also going to be a little more deliberate about my tweets.  After all, it is an opportunity to spread a message; a message about ourselves, our program, our project, our church, our ministry, OR about our Jesus. 

What is your Twitter Sermon say about you?

(P.S. anyone want to guess who’s who??)
