Why Your Church Needs a Social Media Policy – Brian Howard: “Social Media is a major part of most church ministries today. Email and Online messaging are our primary tool for communication. With these technologies come both benefits and challenges. Email and social media can be used for good or for harm. The wise use of these tools is essential for a church. Every church would be wise to have a written set of social media guidelines for its leaders. With this in mind, today I am posting a Social Media Policy from Grace Church in Orlando, FL. These guidelines were written by Grace’s Communications director, Kelly Adkins. I think you will find that they are a helpful start toward writing your own set of social media guidelines.”
The Universe Is Saying Something – Dan DeWitt, dean of Boyce College, writes for Desiring God in this post: “In this way, all of reality is the believer’s ally in sharing the gospel.

To paraphrase Pascal, this is a God-sized problem that only God can fix. Only the gospel provides an exclusive foundation for human flourishing. All other ground is sinking sand.”
