Tonight’s amazing experience happened over three time zones where I saw my friend Carlos Whittaker lead worship from his basement bathroom (seriously) in Atlanta with internet pastor Brandon of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma and me doing a time of prayer from Southern California. There was 170 people who logged in. Carlos’ leadership of worship moved me enough that I thought I might have trouble focusing from my kitchen table. He got me to spin around in my kitchen!
The interactive elements of this made this real to me. There were
over 170 people on the other side of that screen so seeing their prayer
requests and facilitating that time was a new and powerful experience
for me. Seeing names of sick dads, women serving in Iraq, and of
people needing emotional healing impacted me.
The idea of using your online space and place to share Jesus and to
promote that is what makes Lifeshare so exciting. The medium of the
internet is home to many and we as Christians need to particpate and in
this new town square.
