Thanks for the RT's and participation on the first day. Thinking we need to create some coherence w/o over structuring the experience. For this reason, I have started a group for us over on TWUBS where I'll post Scripture and Theme for each Sunday AND where you can follow the experience in real time throughout the day. Hopefully this will just provide a little more focus for the day. I may also do a new blog post each week, but we'll see . . . baby steps.
Until the, feel free to JOIN THE TWORSHIP TWUB.
Okay, so here is a crazy idea: what about the Body of Christ "gathering" together each Sunday to worship God 140 characters at a time?
Oh why the heck not?
If you're game, here's how it will work:
- Every week on Friday or Saturday, I'll tweet an invitation to join for "tworship" the following Sunday.
- You should Retweet the invitation in order to let your followers know what you're up to and that they're welcome to participate or can simply follow along via #Tworship.
- On Sunday, you should then contribute tweets to our worship experience. Tweets could be anything from scripture readings to prayers to any words of insight, thanksgiving, care or challenge. Be sure to use the hashtag #Tworship so we can all follow along. You may also want to include other hashtags such as #prayers #confession #peace #song etc to help spread the word.
- Lastly, as you have time, click on #Tworship and respond and reflect upon what other may have offered to the community that Sunday.
A few assumptions and comments about Tworship.
- #Tworship is mean to gathering self-identifying Christians, but is
non-denominational. We will try to refrain from forming any committees,
electing any bishops or issue any encyclicals 😉
- #Tworship does not replace any face-to-face relationships you may already have with a local congregation. It should enhance our understanding of the breadth and depth of the Christian worshiping community.
- #Tworship is open to all people and while there is no way to filter and monitor how folks interact, it is my hope that people's offering will be challenged with care, affirmed with joy and received as God intends.
- Additional thoughts to be added as needed
So, I think that's it for now . . . lets try this for a bit and see if it gains any traction.
See you Sunday and may the Peace of Christ be with you.
