Fast Track to a Global World

According to blogger Jeff Bullas, the mobile phone has made digital media accessible for almost everyone. Check out these stats on going mobile in the developing world . . .

  • In India, mobile devices account for 72% of all website traffic.
  • There are 1.65 billion active mobile social accounts globally.
  • 561 million active mobile social accounts are located in East Asia.

As the leaders of digital media extend their reach across the globe through mobile devices, pray for God to infuse the mighty power of this platform with messages that uplift, inspire, and unify . . . and do so profitably. 

Why does Media Matter?

Media matters because people matter. Media shapes people . . . and people shape media.

All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables [stories]; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. —Matthew 13:34

At Mastermedia, we connect, we serve, and we pray . . . because we care. As believers whose lives are being shaped by the greatest redemptive love story—the love of Jesus Christ—we care about people. We care about their personal stories, and we care about the stories they are compelled to share.

Pray earnestly for industry professionals . . . and “Pray for God to infuse the mighty power of media with messages that uplift, inspire, and unify.” Media Leader Prayer Calendar.

Outtakes . . . Engaging Culture

Excerpts from the book Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel by Russell D. Moore, American evangelical theologian, ethicist and preacher:
A Christianity that is without friction in the culture is a Christianity that dies. Such religion absorbs the ambient culture until it is indistinguishable from it, until, eventually, a culture asks what the point is of the whole thing.
A Christianity that is walled off from the culture around it is a Christianity that dies. The gospel we have received is a missionary gospel, one that must connect to those on the outside in order to have life.
Our call is to an engaged alienation, a Christianity that preserves the distinctiveness of our gospel while not retreating from our callings as neighbors, and friends, and citizens.
