Tweeting from the National Pastors Convention
CT's Mark Galli offers thoughts from the convention in 140 characters or less.
CT's Senior Managing Editor Mark Galli is running around the National Pastors Convention in San Diego, talking to people like Rob Bell, pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church, and A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically.
He's also using CT's Twitter, that social network that allows you to do some reporting from your phone. The fun part is that Mark has only 140 characters.
Using the #npc09 symbol, Mark will give updates and wants your feedback. What do you want to know about the convention?
I've posted some of his tweets below:
#npc09 Interviewing Rob Bell later today. What ? do you have for him? Tweet markgalli.
#npc09 interviewing AJ "living the Bible literally" Jacobs later. What ? should we ask him?
#npc09 best undiscovered author: Shane Hipps. Has done lots of wise thinking about technology and the gospel.
#npc09 William Willimon preached. Key idea: pastors are called to love the infuriating people that Jesus loves and dies for: the laity
#npc09 Rob Bell: Great interview on his latest book. Thanks especially for the question about putting the gospel in a tweet. He tried :-)
#npc09 AJ Jacob interview: I can see why this guy is so compelling/attractive. He's pretty humble and gracious. Puts some Xians to shame
