Hello. Welcome to INA, a weekly resource to remind us that even though we are physically distant, we are connected in community.


World Social Media Day

This Tuesday, the 30th June, marks World Social Media Day. It was invented in 2010 as a way to recognise social media’s impact on global communication and celebrate all the great aspects! Social media is not good or bad, it's neutral.


I love social media, and it is an important part of how we make change happen.

Many of us, like Michelle Obama, need a break from social media. Why not take 5 mins today to meditate on the words of Jesus from Matthew 11:28-30:


If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest.


Father of all creativity. Thank you for the social media, and how it has brought us connection, awareness and much joy. We pray for good connection with all the positives aspects and protection from all the negative aspects. When we switch on, may we do so with intention and when we switch off, may we find rest for our minds, and souls. AMEN.
