NYC Church Tweeting the Passion of Christ

Experience the Passion of Christ — in 140-character bursts. In a marriage of Christian tradition and digital technology, Wall Street’s Trinity Church is using the micro-blogging service Twitter to perform the story of Jesus Christ.

The main characters will tweet the Passion play for three hours beginning at noon on Good Friday. The feed also can be delivered to mobile devices or e-mail addresses.

The lower Manhattan Episcopal parish also is offering a Web version of the Stations of the Cross. The church was founded by a small group of Anglicans in 1697.

  1. I think it’s cool that this church is embracing technology in order to let more people be aware of not only the Passion Play, but what transpired during it. In this day and age, I wouldn’t be surprised if the masses forgot the real meaning of Good Friday and Easter in lieu of fluffy bunnies and egg hunts. By doing this, it instills and tests one’s faith as well as general enrichment.
