Tweeting the Mighty Deeds of God (Psalm 30)
The real revolution of social media is that it revealed the social layer in the fabric of the Web that was always there, but was not visible before. In that sense, social media has been, as my friend Anthony Smith (@PostmoderNegro on Twitter) would call, “apocalyptic” – it has been a prophetic revelation. Now, I don’t mean “prophetic” in the sense of the Book of Revelation and “the End Times.” I’m using the word “prophetic” here more like Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann uses it in his book The Prophetic Imagination. For Brueggemann, being “prophetic” is about translating between the world as it is and the world as it might be.
So, Steve was with us this week. It was pretty cool.
