“We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers, constantly remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labour of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” -1 Thessalonians 1:2-3

Prior to this summer, all I knew of the Lutheran denomination was from the few interactions with my uncle, who is a rather, well, conservative Lutheran pastor (now retired). In July, I somehow stumbled upon the Church and Social Media chat on Twitter, and my view of Lutherans and the Lutheran church was changed forever.

Reverend David Hansen, a fourth generation Lutheran pastor in the ELCA, has been a tremendous help to all of us in the Church and Social Media arena, and has introduced me to many inspiring folks across multiple denominations.

Pastor Keith Anderson is the pastor at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Woburn, MA which is just 30 minutes down 128 from my city! He is co-authoring a book on the topic of church and social media and has also been the source of inspiration and information on many fronts.

Both of these fine men of the cloth not only have opened my eyes to a Lutheran church that is inclusive, but have connected me with so many great folks of faith in the Twitter-verse!  Follow them on Twitter @rev_david and @prkanderson or just click on the links to their Twitter profiles.  Join us on Tuesday at 9pm EST for the #chsocm Church and Social Media chat as well!

Thanks be to God!
