What’s so great about all of this is that Rhett has become a great friend of mine over the last couple months… and this was the first time we have been able to meet up in the real world.
You see, our relationship started on Twitter. Read more and see more pics after the jump.
They picked me up and we headed out to get some grub at Cafe Brazil. Unlimited coffee, an amazing meal, and candid, fun, and challenging conversations about technology, web, and theology.
This is what community is all about, and what’s so great is that it felt as natural as hanging out with a long time friend.
Twitter has made the world smaller. It has created relationships that I would never have been able to have created and built bridges that could have never been built.
After hanging out and chowing down we headed back to his digs and then headed out to Irving Bible Church where we had a great time of worship and teaching and then had communion.
Just think about this: Could you imagine feeling comfortable having communion with someone you just “met” physically for the first time and worshipping and praising (you know how awkward it can be during praise… you know what I’m talking about…).
Then met up with another Twitter dude (@johndyer). It just doesn’t stop!
It was awesome. What a great first day in Dallas. Now I need to find a good breakfast burrito.
