The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Surrey Stake invites you to participate in a “Social Media Blitz” to support the teaching of Sabbath Day Observance. This social media campaign is scheduled for Sunday January 21, 2018, which happens to be World Religions Day.
For the one day blitz, we are encouraging our interfaith friends to use the unique hash tag #BCSabbathDay. The unique #BCSabbathDay will allow us to track posts, tweets, etc during our one day effort and repost to our Stake Facebook page.
Many faith communities have a holy day or day of worship or meditation during the week. We would like to reach out to other faith communities to encourage them to participate by using the same #BCSabbathDay hash tag sometime during the same weekend to help us trend.
Posts, tweets, etc. should be focused on appropriate activities for Sabbath Day Observance or the day of worship or meditation. (What make that day special or different?)
In order for this Social Media Blitz to be successful, we are asking everyone to:
- Use the prescribed hash tag, #BCSabbathDay
- Make their posts public so that we can track them,
- Inform their friends about the event, and
- Specifically ask at least 5 friends to repost their entries so that it contributes to the trending effort.To track your specific faith community, you can add an additional hash tag, but for all of us working together, we at least need to use the same hash tag.
