Social Christian - Week One


Published on

Never in the history of the world have Christians been given such an opportunity to share the goodness of our God and Savior so freely and with such a mass audience. However, Christians need to be careful about how the culture will interpret and receive the message. Our online presence may be the only clear voice of hope, love and compassion that many hear in their lives. This series explores the culture, tools and online systems that Christians can use to share their faith.
