Church & Social Media

This resource guide continues the conversation started in the presentation #Charlestonsyllabus: What To Read to Understand” delivered to the Third Episcopal District of the A.M.E. Church Planning Meeting, Columbus, Ohio, November 6, 2015 by librarian Shanee’ Yvette Murrain. Here Pastors curious about incorporating social media in Christian Education will find support and tools to reach out to parishoners in new ways.

For more information on #CharlestonSyllabus and other resources for holding these conversations about race motivated violence against the African American community, social media in the new academy, and online bible studies visit this bibliography of resources and Twitter recommendations.
