We are living in a new digital age. The internet has greatly impacted how we create, contribute, share and communicate content. It has never been easier to express who we are and what we believe with the rest of the world.
So many people are trying their best to create viral content. Viral content takes on a life of its own after it is shared. Social networking sites have provided the platform for content- pictures, articles, videos- to go viral. All it takes is a few shares and the right audience to trigger an avalanche of sharing across the internet.
The new digital age is also shaping how we read and study the Bible. Increasing numbers of people read the Bible on their mobile devices. Chances are, if you regularly read the Bible you have the YouVersion Bible App installed on your mobile device. This free Bible for your tablet, phone or computer has been installed over 148 million times.
The makers of the YouVersion Bible App, have released the most popular Bible verses of 2013. These verses are the most shared, most bookmarked, most highlighted and most read verses of last year. Beginning on Sunday, August 10, we will begin a new preaching series titled, Viral Verses. This series will take a closer look at the 4 most popular verses of 2013 and why each verse went viral.
We would love for you to join us at 11am on Sunday. If you are able to attend, you can also download the sermon later in the week here.
