Our ministry, EPM, encourages people to live in light of eternity, and one of the ways we seek to do so is by having a presence on several major social media sites.
When it comes to the dangers of social media, I’ve shared some thoughts here in a past blog. Can Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest really be Christ-honoring, eternity-pointing tools? I believe when done carefully, they can be.
Some of you may follow us one place, but don’t know we’re present elsewhere in a different form. Here’s where you can find us online:
Since you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’ve already discovered my blog, where I post three times a week. However, you may not know that you can subscribe to receive the posts directly in your inbox. Go to www.epm.org/blog and in the left-hand column under “Subscribe to receive posts by email”, enter your email address.
If you’re on Facebook and aren’t yet following my page (www.facebook.com/randyalcorn), I invite you to join me there, where I regularly post thoughts, Christ-centered quotes, Scriptures, and the occasional pictures of my grandkids and our dog Maggie. :) I check my page daily and really enjoy reading the comments and interaction.
I encourage you to also like EPM’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/EPMinistries). It’s a great way to get the latest news from our office, including specials and promotions, information on ministries we support around the world, and more.
I post regularly on Twitter (www.twitter.com/randyalcorn), including Scriptures, quotes, and shorter versions of the thoughts that appear on my Facebook page. So if Twitter is your thing, I invite you to give me a follow.
I know some of you really enjoy Pinterest, so thought you might like to know that EPM has a presence there (www.pinterest.com/randyalcorn). Jenny at our office has done a fantastic job of gathering up attractive visuals related to my books and things I’ve written. We have pins ranging from scripture graphics, book quotes, ministries we support and many things in between. I hope you enjoy taking a look.
If you’re always on the lookout for a great book and are part of Goodreads, you’ll find us there as well (www.goodreads.com/author/show/4862.Randy_Alcorn). I share titles of books I’ve read and recommend, and we run occasional giveaways for my books.
The EPM staff post all of my videos, including everything from short Q&A clips to full-length sermon messages, on our Vimeo site (www.vimeo.com/randyalcorn). We have over 600 videos now, so there’s plenty to browse and watch. Feel free to share and use the videos as you wish.
Due to the questionable and often offensive content that’s unfortunately available on YouTube, we’ve hesitated to refer people to their site in the past. However, YouTube is the place to be when it comes to video and we want to make our content as readily available and searchable as possible. If you subscribe to YouTube channels, you can find us at www.youtube.com/eternalperspectives, where we’re adding new videos each week.
Our EPM staff would like to hear from you: What social media sites do you use and enjoy? And if you have content-related suggestions for any of our social media sites, we’d love to hear them!
