"Social" media. So déclassé, dahling!

Don't get me wrong-I'm a faithful raconteur on Facebook (and obviously going through my French phase!) but it's not a substitute for the real thing.  It's "media" not "life!"

When was the last time you prayed with someone on Facebook?
Or even "twittered" a prayer?

When was the last time you hugged your "fans"?
Or had one of them to dinner?  (Whoa-let's not get too "up close and personal.")

Who do you go to when you've suffered a loss?  "You" Tube?  I don't think so.

This past week one of our leadership received an email from the president of a major organization that said: "You ought to get frequent flyer miles or hazard pay for all the times you sit in quiet support of our (organization's) moments."

That's the stuff of relationships-ones you can touch and talk to and pray with-in person.

Today in the Los Angeles Times was a great story of a couple who routinely take homemade goodies to their local Pomona fire station.  It says in the article:  "They've become like family!"

Hoorah!
