Often worshipers are asked to put away their devices during worship service, but you won’t hear that on Social Media Sunday, September 26. Why? Because Jesus said so. In Sunday's Gospel Jesus reminds us to spread our light; just as salt is no good when it's lost its flavor and a candle is no good without a wick. People need to be told the Good News multiple times in multiple ways: in person, Facebook, Instagram, website, letter, etc. Each of us must share the Good News!
In 2021, our communication options include social media. With over 2.3 billion users of social media* around the globe and 1 million new social mobile users added each day*, going into the world to share good news requires using new tools to reach people where they are.
