Clint Schnekloth, cover story author, interviews Michael Wright, 30, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Alpharetta, Ga., who blogs about his experience of being a new Lutheran at www.newlutheran.com.
@schnekloth: How did you get started as a new Lutheran and a blogger?
@newlutheran: I was bugging my wife with all my questions. Blogging & social networking became great outlets for me to converse with others.
@schnekloth: What have you learned tweeting and blogging to Lutherans?
@newlutheran: That I'm not alone. It's easy to forget how big and diverse the church is when all you see is your congregation.
@schnekloth: What's your best advice for those just starting to tweet?
@newlutheran: The power of these tools is in their ability to facilitate community. Engage others. Generate discussion. Participate!
@schnekloth: Summarize your best blog post for us.
@newlutheran: One that addressed the need for vision, identity and community when churches use online technologies.
@schnekloth: What does it mean to you to be a new Lutheran? A new Lutheran blogger?
@newlutheran: I think it gives me an inquisitiveness about things some may take for granted.
