We have entered a new era, and it’s here whether we’re ready or not.
A few years ago, I wrote my first book, and at the suggestion of some savvy people, started a blog to promote it. Little did I know where that would take me. As I roamed around the internet, looking for like-minded people, I found something very interesting.
There are some really great Christian blogs, podcasts, etc. out there, but over all, we don’t have the representation we need – or that our Father wants. Sure, there are some Christian ministries, but we are greatly outnumbered. Many religions or non-religions are represented, but our presence is sadly lacking.
All of us realize that the digital world has totally taken over our culture. Just as TV changed the lines of communication sixty plus years ago, the internet and other wireless devices now hold the keys to communication in our world. People in their 20’s and 30’s are not watching Christian TV; they are surfing the web – and usually on their phones or tablets.
As I have continued my online presence over the last few years, I have learned some things, and I want to share them with you.
First, I have learned that mastering the tools of the digital world is not as hard as you might think. There are so many software programs now which simplify the process, it’s often a matter of learning which ones to try.
Second, in the process of learning, I have found some great instructors, who are eager to share what they know. Some people who have been online since the inception of the internet, are more than generous in sharing how to get the job done.
Third, I have learned that the internet is inexpensive compared to other means of communication. To my surprise, many applications are totally free.
I am convinced that the internet is here for us to reach the multitudes, worldwide. Let’s not miss this opportunity to saturate the web with God’s Word and His presence
In the coming days, I will be sharing some ideas with you. I hope you will join me in taking up this torch. We have a world to reach.
We can do this!
