Churches using the latest technological tool (gasp!) gets more attention with a feature from San Antonio on pastors using MySpace. The piece includes some good examples of pastors making use of MySpace, including one pastor who received some four-letter tirades via MySpace for a direct mail piece the church sent. But rather than end with a tirade, the pastor was able to apologize and interact with the offended people.
“MySpace might be history in a year,” [Pastor Robert] Emmitt said. “I’m not saying everyone’s got to do this. Let’s try it for a while and see what happens.”
The article also includes a quote from yours truly going off on the proliferation of Christian MySpace knock-offs, but otherwise it’s an interesting read.
