Social Media Feature: Advent Photo-A-Day
Long story short, I came across the Advent Photo-A-Day challenge cruising through Twitter where I follow ChurchSocMed #chsocm. This photo challenge was focusing on Advent and is sponsored by ReThinkChurch.
I’ve seen these photo challenges before and always thought they sounded fun. Luckily for me I serve on the communications committee at St. Augustine’s, Elkhorn and I spoke with another committee member about the possibility of doing this at St. Augustine’s. My co-committee member launched the challenge via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/221312724715623/), setting it up as an event. We invited Facebook friends to join the event and have 13 people participating at St. Augustine’s.
The cool thing about social media is the way information spreads. Now I am seeing friends from across the diocese and beyond, as well the group from my parish participating in the daily photo challenge.
I’ve been pretty inspired by some of the photos and their descriptions that people are posting. It never fails that someone else interprets the daily word in a way different manner than I do and so it is stretching my thoughts and understanding.
If you would like to join along all you have to do is visit ReThink Church on Facebook and get the daily word schedule and then start taking pictures and posting! They encourage the use of the their #ReThinkChurch hashtag if you are sharing your photos on Twitter or Facebook!
