Learning to Speak Christian in an Online World (article)

My article “Learning to Speak Christian in an Online World” is now available in Matthias Media’s Vine Journal, issue 4 (August 2016). The article was first given as a talk for the Centre for Christian Living at Moore College, 17 March, 2016.

Learning to Speak Christian in an Online World: The Vine Journal, Issue 4The journal, which includes a host of great articles, is available for free download, or a print version can be purchased.

Here’s the blurb for my article:

The paradoxes of social media can make speaking Christianly online quite a challenge, even as social media opens up many opportunities for Christians to speak the truth in love. Drawing on the wisdom of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, Lionel Windsor outlines a way forward.

And some drop quotes from the article:

Even though Facebook feels like an online universe, it’s more like a multiverse full of parallel universes, each with a population of one.

This gospel truth, in God’s wisdom, is broadcast through human beings. In a sense, God uses human beings as ‘social media’

You don’t have to be a professional speaker to say something about the gospel of Jesus Christ on social media; you just need to know Jesus and speak.

On Facebook, simply speaking the truth—speaking about your life in light of the gospel—is like a light shining in the darkness.

Not being liked: that’s the worst possible fate on Facebook! But the gospel reminds us that we don’t need to be liked on Facebook!
