What is Social Media Sunday? Started by two Episcopal Church communications volunteers, the idea is simply this: if even a minority of the Episcopalians who use social media all post about their churches on June 29, 2014, millions of our friends and family will learn something about The Episcopal Church. It's evangelism going viral.
Participation can be as simple as an individual acting as a 'social media ambassador" for their church by posting a photo from church on Facebook, putting a church-related tweet or photo with the hashtag #Episcopal on Twitter or Instagram, or checking into church on Foursquare.
If you have the time and resources to plan something more elaborate by June 29, Social Media Sunday can include your whole congregation, perhaps through a forum on social media. The idea is being picked up by other denominations as well; ideas and resources specific to Episcopalians are available at episcopalshare.org. You can also join (and invite your Episco-peeps to) the Facebook event #Episcopal Social Media Sunday.
