Churchwide Assembly!

It's assembly time in Minneapolis. I wish I could be there; the news from MN makes me just a bit homesick and nostalgic for the years I lived in Minneapolis and attended Central Lutheran. My favorite factoid of the day that I read online was that nearly 20% of the country's Lutherans are in Minnesota. I guess growing up in that part of the country must be part of the reason I'm such a liturgi-geek!

I've become quite addicted to the Twitter feed from the convention center. The church has done a pretty good job of making news available. It's a great example of the use of technology to link the world together. You can get up-to-the-minute reports and commentary, rather than waiting for the traditional media to report on it.

For anyone else who is interested, here are some of my favorites tonight:
Churchwide Assembly blog - This is being updated by upstate New York voting members
Official ELCA blog - This seems to be the "official" ELCA blog
ELCA multimedia - This site has audio, video, pictures, etc from Minneapolis

Last, but best, is the Twitter feed. Tonight was the first time I had followed a Twitter feed, and I am completely addicted. I encourage you to check it out #CWA09
