Is it okay to tweet or use other forms of social media during the sermon?
Eric Dye, Jeremy Smith and Phil Schneider talk about the implications of using social media during church from a personal perspective as well as how it might be perceived by those outside of the church.
What do you think?
When I first thought about this topic, I figured everyone would be all for it and that this topic might fall flat on its face. However, I was surprised to find that’s not exactly what our conclusion was. In fact, we all tend to lean towards not using social media during the sermon (I keep going back and forth on the issue), unless there is a concerted effort to do so.
Here’s some more food for thought:
- What I Learned About Live Tweeting During Church
- How ‘Liquid Church’ Is Using Technology from the Pulpit
- Should You Tweet During Sermons?
- Don’t Tweet During the Sermon?
- Study Finds People Tweet More About Church than Beer
We would love to hear what you think about this question.
Should you tweet during church?
You’ve heard him on the podcast for the past few episodes, so we decided it was high time we had Five Questions with ChurchMag author Jeremy Smith.
I think it’s a little funny that there are more links related to the topic than the “Link Love” portion of the podcast post.
