Social Media: Fight or Flee?

Vince Vitale: “Is Free Speech Dead?”

Hey TD!

A member of RZIM’s online community posted this recently, and I thought it was apropos for us to consider at TD.  My friend, Dr. Vince Vitale, does a great job in the video that sparked this member’s thoughts.  I hope it will do so for you as well.

Watch the 5-minute video, read her questions, and let us know what you think! – Arthur

Social media is a double-edged sword – we have so many opportunities to speak, but so few opportunities to be heard. I’m a millennial working in communications, and social media perplexes me as a Christian. It’s been on my mind lately, and Vince Vitale’s recent YouTube video got me awonderin’.

  1. What are social media examples you have seen of someone sacrificing themselves to show both love and truth online?
  2. WWJD[SM] – What would Jesus do … with social media? :slight_smile: Jesus is God’s Son, but He also chose to walk with us humans here on earth. What are practical ways you are are deliberate in being a member of social media communities while still shining His light?

Greetings from Atlanta!

We’re here at RZIM’s Refresh Conference and have had a powerful first day of going under the hood of understanding and sharing the gospel we thought we knew so well. It’s been a challenging and refreshing (yes, it has!) first day.

We have a treat for you today – author and speaker, Dr. Vince Vitale, speaks to you TD’ers about the importance of grounding your faith in Christ before heading to college! Even in this short clip, you can see the heart and power of God. You’ll also see some TD’ers in the background playing Jenga (and, yes, it crashes down!).

“The answer to any question is something true and all truth is grounded in God.”

– Vince Vitale, Refresh ’18
