I have decided to start a new blog. I really enjoy blogging but my last two blogs died a slow and painful death due to neglect. Time can be an issue, right? So I have decided to get back into blogging making sure that I actually make the time a couple times per week to sit down and spill my guts to the world (this is my hope at-least…).
So why have I decided to start blogging again?
On Saturday I attended the Christian New Media Conference in London. It was a really good time of reflecting on all things internet. Exploring trends, thinking about how Christians come across online and exploring what it means to share the gospel in a ‘digital age’.
On the practical side of things the conference was very useful, lots was learned and many new relationships have been established. On the theology side of things I didn’t agree with everything however it was interesting to see how Christians across a very wide spectrum of theological opinion were reacting and engaging in all things social media.
The theme of the conference was story telling:
The digital revolution has transformed the art of story-telling, bringing it once more to the fore. If you think about it, much of what we are engaged with online is story-telling. We might be telling our story, our church or organisation’s story – but ultimately, as Christians, we are telling God’s story.
I don’t want to give away all the interesting things that I learned just yet. Much of it I am still chewing over, but watch this space!
