I succumbed to the 21st century yet again. I now tweet. It will be mainly parish-focused, because I don’t think I have any individual reasons to be on Twitter.
If you have any suggestions or comments, let me know. They asked for my name, and I was honest. But maybe I could have listed my “name” as STA Liturgy. I don’t know what the acceptable protocols are for this kind of thing. I’m not afraid to put my name out there on stuff. And my parishioners know who serves as their liturgist.
Ah! Almost forgot.
I started this great book by Mike Hayes before I went to bed Thursday night at the conference. I finished it on the plane home the next day.
Mike is well known in the blogosphere as the co-founder of Busted Halo. He has a great blog, Googling God. Now, like me, he’s a campus minister. He delivered an excellent presentation at his breakout session. He’s clearly a guy well at home with himself and in his role in the Church. That confidence provides the spirit of this book.
Mike brings an Ignatian education and sensibility to a straight-forward approach to uncovering just what we should be doing with this life God has given us. He peppers six chapters with personal stories of his own work history, and how he was led from a career in broadcasting, to the internet, and from there, to campus ministry and retreats.
If you know a young adult searching for direction along the lines of work, I can’t think of a better book. It will appeal to those who are deeply religious, but will also impact a person not so deeply churchy.
