The world changed in January of 2007. If you have not seen it before, watch Steve Jobs launch of the first i-phone. Yes, that was just over 10 years ago and the introduction of the smart phone quickened the already fast pace of being virtually “connected”.

This is our reality. We are more connected than ever before. The ability we have to be engaged with hundreds or thousands more people than anyone before us gives us great opportunity. In a recent talk at Convergence “Live”, Phyllis Towles laid out a vision for what gospel engagement looks like in a snapchat society.
