Missional Thought of the Day - How to Use Facebook to be Evangelistic (1)


How can churches use Facebook to reach out? One way to do this is to post powerful Christian pictures and videos online.


By placing Christian pictures and video online, the Christian message can be experienced, appealing to today’s right-brained, image driven culture. Leonard Sweet uses the “E.P.I.C.” metaphor for postmodern culture, and the “I” stands for “image-driven.” Sweet rightly invites the Church to visually present the gospel, explaining that “we are a print-saturated, word-based church in the midst of visual technologies that are creating a whole new visual culture.”

The emotion that is evoked by these images is powerful, and can be even more effective than reason in reaching postmoderns, who are skeptical of logic and arguments as a means to truth. The Church needs to recover the power of images, symbols, and stories—virtually eliminated in modern presentations of the gospel—to effectively communicate the gospel today.

Where do you go to find Christian videos that you can post online?

I am using DVD's such as FIREPROOF in my jail ministry. As you know it strongly depicts God at work in broken marriages.

A Heart That Seeks, by Nancy

A Heart That Seeks is writing compiled from Nancy’s journals, blogs, websites and other online platforms. The pages are not in chronological order. The best way to read A Heart That Seeks is to find a quiet place, grab your journal and read one page per day. This copy is a complimentary copy. It may not be sold. In my last post I shared that I would include a video. The promised video will be posted in January. I made a few changes in my schedule to enjoy the Christmas season.The link below…See More
