SOCIAL MEDIA, LIVESTREAMING AND SYNOD ASSEMBLY: One of the recurring themes from Synod Listening Posts was the need for better and more communication. Strategic use of social media is one important way to make better communication happen. Social media provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to share synod assembly information instantaneously and it’s a venue where anyone can join the conversation. Check the synod assembly website frequently as the Assembly Communications Team is preparing a toolkit to help you and your congregation connect in new ways!
