Windchasing -- a Social Media Post

"The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for he will pluck my feet out of the net." ~Psalm 25:15

We've taken some time away from this internet space, Amber and I. It's been a time to rest, refocus, observe, let the land lay fallow. It's been good.

I've been writing a bit on my own, just a few thoughts about this internet space and the efficacy of "Christian living" in it. The Christ in culture discussion is interesting, especially when applied to social media. There are subscribers to be gained, followers to snare, friends to count. There are relevant thoughts to share, ideas to illuminate, "T"ruth to "E"xposit, heresies to combat, poor and sick people to save. There is a best foot to put forward. Always the very best foot.

Sometimes those things can turn the social media experience into a wind-chasing exercise. I could tell you I never chased the social media wind, but that'd be a lie.

These may sound like the rantings and confessions of social media deconstructionist. But I'm not. I'm here to stay. For a bit, at least. And in that time I just want to refocus on using this space well, on knowing how to be a friend of God in it. Not a facebook friend or a twitter follower. But a real, genuine friend who isn't ashamed to let some words go unsaid in "fear."

I'm mouthy, so... that might be hard.
