Pastoral Tools: Twitter

Occasionally I receive a little ridicule for my evangelistic nature. When I find something that I love and works for me I assume everyone should be using it. I have been using Twitter since February 22nd, 2008 although I have only started seriously using it over the past few months.

The question I constantly get about Twitter is …why? Why do you use twitter. One person jokingly said they thought it was so I could avoid actual personal relationships. While there are times that I do avoid them that is exactly the opposite reason I use Twitter.

Basically, Twitter extends my ability to be accessible. I have relationships with people on Twitter that I would never be able to maintain with my schedule. Family, friends and two jobs can really drain the ability to communicate with people on a regular basis. With Twitter I am able to extend my relationships, learn from peers, communicate my heart, as well as share my day to day life with those who might not otherwise be able to be a part of it. That’s a win win for me.

So if you are interested in connecting with me via Twitter you can do so at http://twitter.com/jamielaws. Feel free to look me up on Facebook as well.

You can also follow LifePoint Church at http://twitter.com/lpchurch.

So, here is you chance to be a twit.
