Join @stickyJesus for a Live Chat at Patheos.com today!

After taking a brief hiatus from blogging, the @stickyJesus team is back . . . with some news. Since our book released in hardback nationwide this month, we’ve been having a blast doing interviews, guests posts, interacting with bloggers, and talking 24/7 about what it means to stand apart and #LiveSticky online.

You helped us get the word out online, and now the @stickyJesus message is finding new wings in retail stores and in direct-to-church channels, thanks to our friends at Abingdon Press, who now publish our little book.

What’s new?
Patheos Live Chat: We’re spicing things up in the months to come with guest bloggers, Q & A sessions, and kicking it all off with a live chat this week hosted by Patheos.com. Will you join us? The chat will be this week, Thurs. March 1, from 1-2, CT. Ask us questions, give us feedback, and share your personal challenges (and triumphs) in daily living out your faith in the online space!

Patheos Book Club: Being part of this diverse site has been great exposure for the gospel and this very unique platform of online evangelism. Please, join in the conversation if you’ve read the book. We’d love to see your post and add your feedback to the mix!

Store Locator: Wondering where you can get the beautiful new hardback of @stickyJesus: how to live out your faith online (Abingdon Press, Feb. 2012)? Check out these stores near you, or as always, you can purchase on Amazon.com in both hardback, ebook and Kindle. If the store nearest you doesn’t carry it—please ask them to!

In Churches: Wanna be extra sticky? Ask your pastor to carry @stickyJesus in your church bookstore. Simply give them this ISBN number: ISBN-13: 978-1-4267-4189-0 and they can easily order at the  church rate from Abingdon Press.

What’s next?

We’re excited to announce we’ve got a #LiveSticky curriculum coming out in the Fall 2012 that will include a DVD that includes how-tos, individual and group study questions, and stories from bloggers in the book.  It’s our prayer this curriculum will ignite the larger conversation in churches about how together we can share the gospel online—with confidence and impact!

We’ll also be speaking a ton, so stay tuned to our Media Room for more.

Again, thanks to all our #LiveSticky friends and helping us move this message forward!

10 ways to confront with integrity and respect

Defender of the Faith: quick to listen - slow to speak - slow to anger

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.  James 1:19 – 23, NIV

By Tami Heim

Every generation experiences debate and conflict when it comes to unpacking the intricacies of faith. As new Internet platforms emerge, believers garner easy access to delivery systems that give voice to their religious convictions and biblical interpretations. This generation’s public square is dynamic, emotional, and digitally documented for the whole world to observe, search, and reference.

The online network stream exposes all sorts of faith-based controversies.  When you see them surface listen carefully, be slow to engage, and don’t get worked up or angry. Instead hold fast to the truth and then you won’t be overwhelmed by the tensions. It’s imperative you not let the beauty and simplicity of the Gospel be convoluted and lost in a vortex of theological argument.

Remain centered on the pure and holy intention of God’s vision,

Christ’s mission,

and the charge of the great commission.

how knowing the truth changes you

By grace, through faith you are saved.

By Tami Heim

Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above,not earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.  – Colossians 3:1-3

In that transforming moment on the Damascus road,  Paul gets God’s plan and immediately begins to live out the paramount truth of it. He endures many trials and relentlessly presses through all of them to make the Gospel known.

Knowing the truth, Paul can’t help himself. There’s no other option.

15 stickiest moments from the NOW Conference

And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow me.” John 21:18b, NKJV

by Tami Heim
High impact was redefined this past weekend when the Lifeway Threads staff assembled 15 speakers to pour into 500+ young adults for 22 hours. Friday night at 6:50 PM the doors of the Brentwood Baptist Church opened  to host the first ever  NOW Conference. Aaron Keyes and  the worship team launched the event by clearing out the clutter, amping up the energy, and preparing hungry hearts to receive exactly what God had for them.

Experiential and unconventional were promised and based on the buzz at the breaks and trending twitter feed, the desired outcome was achieved. God’s Word dominated each hour and it was impossible to escape the urgent call to live and give others the Gospel-NOW.

On the pages of custom-designed notebooks and through the hashtag twitter stream, sacred impressions were captured in the instant the Holy Spirit interpreted them. While the event was designed for young adults, truth is relevant at any age and it begs to be given away. The NOW of living missional applies to all of us.

Here are fifteen of the stickiest moments from the NOW Conference, the speakers who shared them, and the theme of each presentation.
