Aula de Facebook para bispos

A Bíblia tem 73 livros, 1.330 capítulos e 35.527 versículos, levando em conta uma determinada tradução de Antigo e Novo Testamento.

O retangulozinho no Twitter comporta, no máximo, 140 caracteres.

“Não é uma linguagem igual à de Guttenberg, né? Agora ela é rápida, simples, espontânea”, diz (por telefone) a irmã Elide Maria Fogolari, uma senhora de 73 anos que no dia 10 de junho anunciou sua entrada triunfal em outra rede social assim:

Olá amigos e amigas!

Finalmente estou entrando no facebook! Não sei se vou dar conta. Fico mais preocupada com as atividades da comissão do que estar no facebook. Mas vamos lá. Um grande abraço, Elide

Se “no princípio era o verbo”, como diz a abertura do Evangelho de João (em 24 caracteres), agora a forma de relatá-lo modernizou: na semana passada, cerca de 55 bispos da Igreja Católica passaram quatro dias numa colônia em Jaboatão dos Guararapes, na região metropolitana de Recife (PE), para um curso de comunicação sobre a era digital.

Pela manhã, exposições teóricas com “leigos”: professores de comunicação de várias universidades do país. À tarde, oficinas práticas de rádio, TV (“media training”) e redes sociais (Twitter e Facebook).

“O mais surpreendente foi constatar o potencial das redes sociais. Vários bispos nunca tinham mergulhado nessa prática e saíram entusiasmados como novos frequentadores do continente digital”, diz (por e-mail) dom Dimas Lara Barbosa, presidente da Comissão Episcopal Pastoral para a Comunicação e arcebispo de Campo Grande (MS).

How To Get Rid Of Your Pastor!



From the MinistryBestPractices Archives: 


I offer you this tongue-in-cheek and thoughtful post by John Roberts in it’s entirety:


Some time back, I heard about a church that had been trying to “get rid” of their pastor. Sadly, this is something that happens a lot in the American church scene. We get unhappy with the pastor or with something the church is doing; and then, instead of doing the biblical thing and prayerfully seeking to work out the differences, we choose up sides. Then, if there are enough votes to dismiss or enough people to make things really unpleasant, out the pastor goes.

It’s tragic, not only because of what it does to that pastor, but because of the broken relationships and the slow-healing wounds left behind, which often remain long after the pastor departs. Frankly, there are simpler ways. If you ever want to get rid of your pastor, instead of looking for votes or choosing up sides, try one of these five ideas.

Idea No. 1: During the Sunday morning message, listen closely and take notes. Look your pastor straight in the eye, and occasionally nod your head and say, “Amen!” Begin to make serious efforts to apply the life lessons you learn from the sermons. In six months, he’ll preach himself to death.

Idea No. 2: Pat your pastor on the back and brag on his good points two or three times a month. Make a bunch of phone calls to your friends and neighbors and tell them all the good things about your pastor. In a little while, so many more people will start coming to your church, you’ll have to hire an associate pastor, and your senior pastor will be free to leave.

Idea No. 3: Next Sunday, in response to the sermon, go forward to the altar and rededicate your life to Christ. Then make an appointment with the pastor sometime next week. Ask him to give you some job you could do for the church, preferably some lost people you could go visit with a view to winning them to Christ. He’ll likely die of heart failure on the spot.

Idea No. 4: Organize a ministry to call on the shut-ins and elderly members of the church, and encourage the pastor, as the early church did (see Acts 6:1-7), to devote more of his time to prayer, the study of God’s Word and sermon preparation. Tell him you’ll take care of the widows if he’ll take care of the preaching. He’ll think the whole congregation has gone completely crazy and start looking for another church immediately.

Idea No. 5: Get a whole bunch of the church members to unite in earnest intercessory prayer for the pastor, his ministry and his family. Organize prayer meetings in which you pray for the growth of the church and the blessing of the pastor. The pastor may become so effective in ministry that some larger church will gladly take him off your hands.

One note of caution, however: if you try one of these methods, you may find that you don’t want to get rid of your pastor after all.
