Wesley Bros: What would Jesus tweet?

It’s a new day of relational ministry!  Social media!  Now I don’t have to actually minister to people in person!  I can build up networks that make me famous in certain blogging circles while also hoping that 5% of my congregation reads what I do so that I can count it as my job!  I am allowed to make this joke because I write this comic, #sothere.

I’m away at a camp this week with High School students, and missed my Tuesday comic deadline because I spent the entire night in the ER with a kid who had a nail go through his foot.  Though I only got a total of 2 hours of sleep between two full days of home repairs camp, it was #worthit because of all the #relationships that happen in the #ERat4am.  Anywayzzzz, I just blew 25 minutes in Caribou Coffee posting this comic while my youth are out fixing people’s homes.  But you’ll be pleased to know I spent the bulk of my time drawing it at home when I was supposed to be parenting my children.  #onduty.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
