Can you believe it? It’s Labor Day Weekend 2013 already! Where have all the sun-drenched days of summer gone? The autumn leaves of red and gold will soon be swirling in the air. To mark the occasion, we have assembled a special souvenir of the awesome Summer of 2013 that we hope will bless you, and remind you of those much-too-soon-departed, wonderful days of summer!
It has been an especially rich and exciting summer at our companion publication, SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY NEWS. For each of the past 90 days, SOCIAL MEDIA and MINISTRY NEWS has offered its readers the best church social media news this summer, packed with information, videos, and photos of the latest, most-talked-about and interesting developments in the faith, social media, and technology space.
