Two Christian-based organizations committed to using the latest technology as a way to encourage believers to share their faith online announced plans for Social Media Day this Monday (June 30).
Reach Beyond (www.reachbeyond.org) and Global Mapping International (www.gmi.org) are partnering to celebrate the day, launched by Mashable in 2010. According to Internet World Stats, more than 2.4 billion people around the world use the Internet – one-third of the global population. In the last several years alone, the growth of social media has made it possible for people from all walks of life to communicate in unique, personal and effective ways, organizers said.
"The Internet — and specifically social media — connects millions of people each day," said Wayne Pederson, president and CEO of Reach Beyond. "Even in the most isolated areas of the globe, there are people online. During Social Media week, we want to encourage followers of Jesus to use all means necessary to give evangelism a powerful jolt. Our partnership with GMI helps more people engage with this important content and be inspired to reach out and share their faith." more >>

Game, who left the homosexual lifestyle, also acknowledges that he is living in "denial," though he defines the term differently. Part one of the interview can be read here.
CP: Let's talk about the term "gay Christian." How do you feel about it, and is there a better term that we should be using?
Game: I do not like the term. I'm not a person who is politically correct. I don't say things to try and make people like me or anything like that. But I read the book Washed and Waiting by Wesley Hill to try and understand these growing groups of people — I'm obviously not one of them — who call themselves gay Christians. more >>
