Eat, Pray, Tweet


We could see this in Christian Churches also!

Have you considered how media is changing even modes of worship and other religious practices that help shape our identity? 

WHAT does the most populous Muslim nation do in its spare time? Increasingly, it swaps gossip online. Indonesia is now the world’s second-largest market for Facebook and the third-largest for Twitter, according to several web research firms. (from The Economist).

What does it mean to us as we find new practices acceptable within the realm of worship?  One church assembly I have recently visited has a section of the seating divoted to the digital crowd.  Will these new modes of worship change our understanding of what has been hereto accepted as proper worhship norms?  What will the impact of digital worship be as we digtially socialize while we are to be devoting our self before God?  These are questions that may disturb you.  You may rather embrace these new ventures in life.  Regardless, these changes are as inspiring and as devastating (dependent upon your view) as was the advent of televised worship.
