  9. 9. Why does social media matter? Remember, Christianity is fundamentally rooted in a communication event.  The entire basis of our religion is predicated on God revealing himself to humanity — communicating to and with us. His selfrevelation, or message, was delivered in a myriad of media including angels, burning bushes, stone tablets, and even a donkey. God is in the communication business. So in a sense, any serious study of communication is a study of God. – Shane Hipps Monday, February 24, 14
