Ep #19: Building Community Through Social Media with Linda Hart

Linda HartLinda Hart is a Unitarian Universalist minister based in Washington state. Her work as a pastor has taken her to communities throughout the United States and England, and with her expertise in community building and group facilitation, her work increasingly has online and technological components.

We tend to think of clergy as being more philosophical and less technological, and Linda busts that myth and shares with us how she’s increasingly using technology to connect with members of her community. Like many of us, Linda is learning how to use new technology in ways that are effective for work, and which help her have joyful connections in the world. In this episode she helps us see how the leadership of organizations can use technology to be more effective in their connections with their membership while creating positive interactions.
