Pastor David Maier of Our Savior Lutheran Church on the southwest edge of the Lansing (MI) area blogs and Twitters. He's trying to use these two social media tools to supplement is face-to-face interaction with his parish and to add extended church family through the web.
His church and it's day school are situated in the heart of mid-Michigan, an area that's struggling to repurpose and re-vision itself with its faltering economy. He knows personally the storms that come in life as a lymphoma survivor and as a dad of a teenage son who had brain cancer.
As a babyboomer who was not weaned on a computer, he's trying to thread his way through the challenges of using social media as a way to share his obsession for the hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
