Featured Site: WeTheChurch.org

UPDATE2: The folks at WeTheChurch.org have added moderation and restored the site.

UPDATE:  I’ve removed the links to this site temporarily.  Unfortunately, the site was vandalized last night and I do not recommend you visit it until the creators have a chance to fix it and work on a solution to prevent it from happening again.  It’s really sad that people will abuse resources like this, but it happens.  I’ll update this post once there is a solution.

————————-

I realize it’s not a featured blog as we normally do, but this week, a great site, WeTheChurch launched.

WeTheChurch is a twitter-like site where people can anonymously submit praises and prayer requests — keeping the 140 character limit in tact. You can also follow WtC on Twitter, and be notified when someone has submitted something new.

From the site:

WtC.org was created to unite the church in prayer.

Need prayer in your ministry?
Submit a prayer

Thankful for something?
Submit a praise.

And while you’re here why not pray for a few things on the prayer list?

It’s that simple.
Just us, the church,
praying for each other.

This ties in very well with the unity focus of One Prayer. After I found the site, I talked to one of the creators, Chad Wright. It was great to hear his passion! Scott Magdalein also did an excellent job on the technical side of the site.

I highly recommend you visit WeTheChurch, and even better, follow it on Twitter.

    You know, I confess, I’m not a fan of Twitter-ing. Seems a bit narcissistic to me. Do I really need to know what you’re thinking all the time, what you just ate, where you’re heading now, what’s on your TV? I don’t think so. But this - now this is a great use of the same kind of technology.

    I guess that Paul guy was right. EVERYTHING can be redeemed huh?
