The Good News of Social Media

The Good News of Social Media is not followers or friends or likes or retweets. The Good News of Social Media is context. Because context changes everything.

There is nothing selfish about the selfie, nothing fake about Facebook. Every interaction, both physical and digital, is a real encounter that shapes our sense of self. Each encounter is an opportunity for empathy, to be present, to re-present “God with us” for whomever the “us” might be.

You are the Word made fresh. God has hands; they’re attached to your wrists. Use them to impact the world around you, to rehearse the reign of God in every single status update.

Live in your context, both physical and digital. Because you are the Good News of Social Media.
