Now into his sixties John Piper seems set on not growing old gracefully. Here he shares his reasons for joining the ranks of twitter users. (If you’ve been in a cave for the last couple of years twitter is a microblogging platform - like a halfway house between your facebook status and a mini blog in which you’re limited to 140 characters).
Though others are commending twitter ("Twitter has changed my prayer life" - Al Mohler) and crediting it with power to bring political freedom to Iran, only Piper would write a ‘tweetable’ poem.
The sovereign Lord of the earth and sky
Puts camels through a needle’s eye.
And if his wisdom see it mete,
He will put worlds inside a tweet.
I don’t think I’ll be tweeting anytime soon though.
I’d probably be more like Tedashii than Piper.
