Social Media is one of the best tools we have to continue ministry outside of the hour on Sunday. All the time is a great time to spread the gospel of love and hope, but people are listening now more than ever.
Social media doesn’t have to be complicated, and it doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to be relational.
It is vital that we are active on our social media accounts. Post in the feed, go live, share stories, ask questions, and comment on other people’s posts.
Consider the emotional ramifications of social distancing. We’re asking people to isolate themselves and stay home. How can we work against the effects of loneliness, boredom, stress, anxiety, or hopelessness?
We can help by being present. We can help by sharing information that isn’t based in fear, but based in hope.
