New Evangelizers Post: Using the Internet for Evangelization

I have a new article up at


I have only been blogging for a little over a year, so please take any advice given here with that in mind.  There are some great pioneers in using the internet to spread the Gospel.  I am only riding on their able coattails.

But what I have found is that when it comes to evangelizing online, one size does not fit all.  There are different approaches that should be taken in different venues and there are different methods of giving and acquiring information.


I have found blogging to be like giving a sermon.  Thoughts are collected in advance and then presented to the community.  There isn’t a lot of interruption or questions.  Blogging reflections and essays forces you to collect your thoughts into some kind of coherent unity so that you can express yourself effectively.  And just as long sermons tend to upset more than they uplift, long blog articles do, too.  Blogging is not like writing a book.  You must be concise and clear in a few paragraphs or you will lose the interest of the audience.
