A Year Without Facebook: Episode 54

What is it like to unplug? To stay offline, not just giving it up for Lent, but for a whole year? On this episode of Social Media Church, Clement Wen talks with me over lunch (thus the ambient noise) and describes how he did youth ministry without Facebook. Clement is Youth Minister at Chinese Bible Church of Maryland (in Rockville). This episode also includes an excerpt from Clement’s sermon where he described the things he learned from being disconnected from Facebook for a year, and even how that experience showed him an insight about the heart of God.
