About This Episode
The rise of social media has created a whole new way to share and engage ideas. While this is often helpful, it can also have some really negative effects. In particular, when it comes to the formation of our theological ideas, our understanding of who God is and what he's up to, and our perspective on the local church and her mission in the world, twitter and other social media platforms have created some confusing, even harmful, caricatures.
On this third episode of Twitterology, Jay and Isaac chat with Liz Ditty and Chris Nye about the often-instagrammed image of an individual casually relaxing by the lakeside or up in the mountains or at the beach or in a favorite cafe, alone and isolated, declaring, “This is my church today.” But is it? Is this really church? Certainly, quieting down the noise of our lives, getting away to a quiet and beautiful place, to experience God on a personal level through not only the mind but the senses… these are good and wonderful things. But is this church? And if not, what are the dangers in declaring that this is church?
