I found this on Father James Martin’s Facebook wall and I have seen it pop up in any other number of places over the past few days. That is the good news and the bad news about the internet.
As we begin our efforts in online ministry here at Immaculate Conception, I am really praying about striking the right tone and tenor of what this is about. If you listened to any of my podcast at Dating God, you know how serious I am about the use of New Media as an essential element of contemporary evangelizing.
The image above reminds me of the danger of superficiality out here. It is not about a Twitter follow or “liking” a Facebook page, but rather about following Jesus. It is part of my hesitation about moving forth with starting a parish Facebook and/or Twitter page.
It is not that complicated but it is very hard. We can point and click all we want, in the end, if we do not really follow Him, we are lost.
Just something for all of us to ponder, just something for all of us to actually do.
