Communion…140 Characters at a Time

Rev. Tim Ross, a Methodist minister in the UK is getting ready to break some new ground in August. He’s attracting followers now for the first communion service delivered via Twitter. In this service, he will send out a series of Tweets which the recipients will read out loud and then type “Amen” as a reply.

Hundreds have already signed up and Ross hopes to have thousands by August.

“[Twitter is] a community that’s as real and tangible as any local neighbourhood and we should be looking to minister to it. The perception of church is often that it is rusting away in antiquated buildings and not in touch with the world around us, but this is a statement that we’re prepared to embrace the technological revolution.” – Rev. Tim Ross

    This is an interesting way to communicate but it is certainly not a Christian form of communion. Communion is tangible and physical. For example, read What He Said: the Gospel according to St. Luke, chapter 22:17-20.
