Learned from Twitter: week ending July 11, 2009

What a fun week its been, on and off Twitter. Here are a few of the nuggets of wisdom and wonder I learned on Twitter this week.

1. saraeden (Sara Eden) was blessed by some generous people at her church. These are the people who both bless & humble us as we serve God and students.

"the grandparents of 2 students just offered to write a check for my @nywc registration. Humbled by this church family over and over."

2. riddlegroup (Mark Riddle) shared a great opening line for your next message.
"A great intro to a sermon/talk: "Your job is to take notes, my job is to make that impossible." - Peter Rollins"

MarkMatlock (Mark Matlock) asked a great question for anyone with kids to answer. So, what is your answer?
"Sit-down meals with family 'keep youths out of trouble''. How often does your family eat together?"

(Anonymous twitterer) shared one of the reasons youth ministers do what we do.
"Had a great meeting with a young man considering going into full time ministry."

shawnmichael (Shawn Michael Shoup) quoted me for the first time of anyone on Twitter (that I know of). Thanks Shawn. (I just thought I'd share with you, blog readers, because I thought it was cool that he actually quoted me.)
"You need 2 B involved in a youth worker network & more importantly, U need 2 strive 2 help make it the best network anywhere."(via @lilkup)

saraeden (Sara Eden) shared a great moment she had with a senior and freshman. Sometimes, high schoolers are just amazing, aren't they?
"Just heard a senior say 'woo hoo! You're officially a high schooler!' and high five a new freshmen. Love it!
