I tweet quite a bit and I can’t imagine anyone reads them all (if any). So here is some of the great stuff I have found on twitter recently.
7 Websites to Get Free High Quality Images – churchm.ag – If your church still uses clipart, on your website, in your bulletin, in mailers, etc. please (how can I say this nicely?) stop.

There are a ton of great stock images available to better communicate your message on your website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

How to “Decode” Your Church Website Content (Part 1) – churchwebsiteideas.com – There is a school of thought that suggests that, in order to reach out to new people, we should avoid using any “churchy” terminology. There is another school of thought that says that we shouldn’t avoid it. Instead, we should use the language of our faith and tradition but we should be sure to teach its meaning. This post is a good look at that.
