Imitation is the Weirdest Form of Flattery

Imitation is the Weirdest Form of Flattery

Many of you, reading here, will have had your facebook profile cloned. Some of you have had your social media profile hacked.

Internet Hymn

Internet Hymn

In preparing for the Eucharist celebrating 10 years online, I tweeted and facebooked seeking a hymn which acknowledges the Internet. The reactions mirror the discomfort that many Christians and many churches have with the Internet, certainly a lack of seeing it (in practice) as “good,” yet another God-given tool, and a place for mission and… Continue Reading
