Bloggers and Twits at Lausanne


We had a meet up and photo shoot this morning for the blogging team and those twittering. Lots of good bloggers here but the best blogger in the bunch, and the one most consistently on the ball despite all our technical challenges and internet scarcity, was Chris Kidd. Check it out.

And special thanks to Dr Dion Forster for aggregating everyone and leading the social media team. He said some really nice and almost believable things about my blog yesterday at a session on technology and mission. And even though I protested that such claims were overly generous, I was given all kinds of business cards and invitations and even Jerry White suggested the possibility of partnering in some way with Lausanne as it continues its ministry after the Congress. Cool. Thanks Dion.


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.

    Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for loaning us your wonderful mind, your great wit, and your super readers! Your blog has accounted for a large percentage of the ‘link through’ traffic that we’ve received on the various Lausanne sites! Thanks Andrew!
    Even though the kiwis may never beat the South Africans at Rugby, I am pleased to concede that you’re the BEST blogger in the world!
    Let’s keep the conversation going! The whole Gospel, to the whole world, through the whole Church (even the online churchy guys like us 😉
