And the Lord Said "Follow me, I'll follow U Back!"

My daughter, who is 3 going on 26, came across an Easter card as we were cleaning our house this weekend and as some children might, exclaimed the obvious, “Oh look Dad, it’s Jesus!” “That’s right honey” I replied, “And do you know who His Daddy is?” “It’s Zeus.”


Clearly, she needs a chat about which God is which but at least she knows there is a Big Kahona of some kind floating around up there somewhere. This got me thinking about two things: She needs to learn about Google soon to clear up these oversights but more importantly, God, His Son and the mighty power of Twitter.


Let me back up a bit here. I actually thought about this last week when the 18 month old brother of my daughters friend fell two stories off of a balcony and was and is seriously injured. I had gone on Twitter where I have a very healthy following, and asked for prayers for the family and his recovery. Within 2 hours of posting, it had close to 50,000 eyes on it and responses from every corner of North America. Church groups and prayer circle had rallied to pray for this boy they did not know. The prayers seemed to have worked as is he is steadily improving,  his path will be a difficult one.


Imagine now, had there been Twitter in Christ’s time how fast Christianity could have taken off and or, the opposite, would he have been just a popular hashtag for a while or a trending subject for a few days? Mr. Christ could have been global in a matter of hours with each of those epic quotes of his!


His number of followers would have made Chris Brogan, Ashton Kusher and Charlie Sheen ask what they were doing wrong? Between Him and his 12 apostles sending out direct tweets He was guaranteeing Himself at least 4 Million impressions per quotable.


“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and everyone who humbles himself will be exalted.” #leadership #youmatter #gospel Plz RT

RT @Luke “Let the one among you who is without #sin be the first to cast a stone.”- JC #Truth #bethechange cc: @PontiusP

@Mark1 At crucifixion Epic #fail for #Rome So Lord, they know what they do.

@MaryMag OMG At burial cave. Stone moved. Where is JC? WTH? Still doubt @Thomas? LOL Cc: @Luke @Matthew


Clearly, I am not trying to make light of the Lord here but trying to make a couple of different points:

 - One Tweet can make a difference. Put out a call to arms and watch the good of social media unfold before you.

-  Putting out less narcissistic Tweets and more positive meaningful Tweets will get you a lot farther and benefit a lot more people’s souls.

-  Be the change. If ONE man can make an impact like Jesus did with word of mouth and some scrolls, imagine what you can do with Social Media?


Now go forth and spread good tidings people! Put some more positive energy into the universe and more good will happen! As J.C Himself said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works”

And So It Goes…

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
