Evangelizing through your FaceBook status

I was recently out to dinner with some parishioners and the conversation turned to evangelization and social media. KS made a great suggestion that I want to pass on to you here.
Post your Sunday Mass experience 
as your status on FaceBook! 
Maybe something like the one below.
(Click on the image for a larger version!)


Such a post might:
1) remind your FB friends about prayer on the Lord's Day
2) tease their interest in what you heard and experienced
3) begin a conversation of "comments" and "likes" on what you posted
4) move an inquiring mind to be in touch with you
5) make room for the Spirit to move in ways known only to God...

Guidelines for FaceBook evangelizing:
Keep your post brief and friendly.
Include a few details to spark readers' interest.
Leave your status open ended - and be positive!

And if you're someone who "checks in" on FaceBook via your smart phone, you might do that, too  - but be sure you "check in" and put your phone away before the opening song begins!

Could be interesting if your doing this leads to others on your friends' list doing the same.  I'm going to give it a try - and I hope you will, too.

Thanks, KS!
