Thanks Paul, I agree with you regarding "you have more to lose by not trying new things and not risking anything". The only way we learn is by trying new things and often by making mistakes. As I share with my kids we are able to redeem our mistakes if we learn from them. Hopefully, I will learn from all the mistakes I make.

Thanks Toni,
As you may have been able to tell Twitter is also my favourite platform. It has helped me learn to say more in less words. When I preached my kids used to tell me that I was a little long winded. It has helped me be a little less long winded. But I still love to tell stories. :)

I agree with you that as disciples of Jesus we have only scratched the surface. There are so many possibilities to minister using online platforms. That is what attracted me to online ministry. It gives me a space to experiment with possibilities. It has also allowed me to gain insights from others who have already gone down certain paths. I look forward to what God will do through technology in the coming years.

I especially liked your comment "It's finally politically correct to fold in personal values to your business brand". My kids have shared with me that they often get frustrated with having to be politically correct when it is morally incorrect.

Blessings, Rob

Thanks Bruce, I agree that the connections do not have to be deep and developed to be effective. There are many tweeps I have never connected with beyond a retweet or a passing comment. But I recognize there is still communication happening between us.

I like what you said about "saying more with less words". I so agree.

I especially like your idea of having a tweet week post on your blog. It is a great way of reviewing those tweets that have really been encouraging throughout the week. Thx

Paul, I find twitter is great because of my work schedule. I am able to get news at anytime of day or night. I still use RSS feeds but they go to my iphone which is connected to twitter.

I find great motivation when I read tweets. I look for the tweets that really speak to me and then retweet them to others. I find it is an excellent way of being encouraged and encouraging others. Often the ones that I tend to retweet regularly are the same people that tend to become friends.

One thing that I was going to include in the post was the use of lists. Lists have become the best way for me to stay connected with those who really want to connect. I have found the lists on twitter are an excellent tool.

Thanks Paul for inviting me to participate even though I lost a day somewhere. :)

Hey Gordon,

Like you I have met people for the first time after only having contact with them through the Internet. It is astonishes me how much of a connection has already been established with someone you have never met before.

I also agree with you that "collaboration" ought to be on the list. Just recently I was contacted by a local pastor who had seen my twitter account and wanted to connect. When we met face to face there was already a sense of knowing one another. It amazes me the God moments that can occur through online ministry.

I also agree with your last statement. Through Twitter I have had the honour of connecting with so many great people whom I now consider friends.

Thanks Sandra, As I was writing this post I was thinking about the connection I have made online and the influence they have had in my life. Though I have connected with many people online I have never met in person there is still a real sense of kinship.

I have also found the limit placed on twitter comments has helped improve my writing. It has forced me to think about what I want to say in as few words as possible. This has helped a great deal especially when I am talking with my teenage sons. :)
