Tweets during a sermon

Psalm 148 is full of celebration.  It’s joyous, jubilant, and exciting.

It also sounds a little bit like a preacher on a roll – only they are having trouble keeping things coherent.

This is what I think tweet responses might look like during sermon that used the words of Psalm 148.

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights!
@pewtweet  What are the heights?

Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host!
@pewtweet  Of course – they have to, right?

Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!
@pewtweet  wait a minute – those things can’t do stuff like that!

Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!
@pewtweet  waters above the heavens?  Uh . . . .

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created.
@pewtweet  OK – so everything God’s created celebrates – I’m starting to understand

He established them forever and ever; he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.
@pewtweet  Preacher’s on a roll!  Preach it!  Preach it!

Praise the LORD from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps,
@pewtweet   Uh . .. sea monsters?  Wait a minute now.

fire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command!
@pewtweet  What is this preacher talking about now? I think the thought train is out of control!

Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars!
@pewtweet  Fruit trees?  I’m hungry now.

Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds!
@pewtweet   Creeping things.  That sounds like creepy things.  (laughing to self)

Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!
@pewtweet  OK – back on track now. 

Young men and women alike, old and young together!
@pewtweet   Yes!  Everyone together praising God!  We’re on another roll!

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.
@pewtweet  This whole place is about to shout out loud.  I can feel it building!

He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the LORD!
@pewtweet  That horn thing is the Shofar, right?  It gets people all riled up.  We’re really rolling now!  Let’s keep going!  Let’s sing!  Let’s shout!  Praise God!
