Clint Schnekloth wrote this new book titled, “Mediating Faith: Faith Formation in a Trans-media Era“, and is lead pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church (Fayetteville, Arkansas). He joined the Social Media Church podcast for a conversation about the back story of his new book, how social media is used in his church community, and his experience of joining others for worship in the virtual world of Second Life, and, of course, we do talk about the book too.

Social Media Church has a lively conversation with Justin Wise, author of a brand new book, The Social Church: A Theology of Digital Communication, just released 1 week ago and the print edition was already sold out on day 1 and it is still temporarily out of stock. But good thing the Kindle edition never runs out and you can buy it instantly! Get the back story of how the authoring and publishing experience went for Justin, how they decided to focus the book’s big idea on the “why to” rather than the “how to”, how Justin is training and coaching churches and entrepreneurs to be more effective with social media, and listen for the special offer for Social Media Church listeners. By the way, Justin Wise is currently a professional social media strategist, based in Des Moines, Iowa, a city that he’s very proud of.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and I had some extra time during holiday vacation to launch a Christian Podcast Directory. Yes, consider it my Christmas gift for you listeners of the Social Media Church podcast.

I squeezed in recording this shorter episode while in transit during holiday travels, so it’s kinda like a soundseeing tour, except where I was going had nothing to do with the topic of this episode.

Thanks for sharing a few holiday minutes with me, and I hope to be having more good conversations here in the new year! Call our listener voicemail # 949-354-3216 and leave a message to join the conversation!

Church Podcast Directory – just launched for Christmas 2013 #MerryChristmas- intentionally only listing podcasts that are produced specifically for a podcast listening audience, not for sermons or syndication of radio or TV shows (because podcasting is better for on-going conversations than one-way broadcasting)
