The book, SOCIAL MEDIA AND MINISTRY Sharing The Gospel In The Digital Age, grew out of the ideas, posts, and insights harvested on this blog, Faith Based Media 2.0. The book is like songs collected into an album with additional compositions added to tie all the songs together!
When I began the book project, little did I realize it would end up on iTunes and in the pages of the New York Times! LOL! The LORD knows exactly how to work everything out in such a way that it just blows your mind!
There are things we are specifically called to do. And when we are given these special assignments, we immediately know, beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt that “no” is not an option! So it was with writing SOCIAL MEDIA AND MINISTRY. This special assignment came unambiguously, crystal clear!
But then, those Moses moments arrive: “LORD, who am I, that I should write? And since I can’t write like Shakespeare, or even James Patterson, what will I say? And who will listen?”
Now, you know the LORD has already told you He would be with you; that He would provide you with the words and the readers. So, stop already, with the excuses! “Do it. Just write!”
You realize, ultimately, that it’s not about you, anyway! It’s all about Him! The work is to His glory! Obedience is better than sacrifice.
SOCIAL MEDIA AND MINISTRY was designed as a short format work to mirror the short format form of most social media communications. Brief. Concise. And to the point! All extraneous material was excised.
After much work, sweat, and prayer, miraculously, the book was completed! Praise Our God!
And after you finish your special assignment, you exhale, thank the LORD, and then move on to your next assignment!
What special assignment(s) are you working on?
SOCIAL MEDIA AND MINISTRY is available at Amazon.com, and also on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iBooks, and on your computer with iTunes!
Until next time, remember, you can do all things through Christ Jesus!
