Article in @christiantoday on Community in a Digital Age

Had a good email conversation with Quentin the other week, and here’s some of the results: In days gone by, connecting on a large scale meant Christians having to meet in person, in conference centres or church halls. Now, Christians anywhere and everywhere can connect with each other online every day. A virtual community has built up around the Bible thanks to The Big Bible Project, which currently has 60 active contributors and has around Continue Reading →

Forethought for Tuesday in Holy Week #EasterLive

Thought 1: What to talk about today? So, it’s Tuesday, what does that mean? Not knowing the Easter timeline all that well, I was very pleased to spot this Holy Week Timeline via someone’s Twitter account, and blogged about it earlier today on BigBible. According to the timeline above, we’re onto the withered fig tree, but EasterLive gives us a clear outline for the stories that we are looking at. Thought 2: Tom Wright: The Continue Reading →

Have you heard of EasterLive yet? If not, check it out, and see the stories that people are posting on the #EasterLive hashtag on Twitter (if you’re not sure how to use Twitter, there’s a great guide here), and last year’s story is being retold on Facebook.

Focusing for October

So, this year, pretty much everything that I’m doing is digital, so I’m starting to be a bit more strategic about what I’m doing, and allowing my projects to inform each other…. I’m really looking forward to reading @unmarketing’s book (see right), as I’ve never been a fan of marketing, it’s always been about the community, and community engagement… I’m expecting to see ideas for how to kick-start communities and the kind of tactics that Continue Reading →

The BigBible Project; Housegroup… with a new media layer!
