If you post it will they come?

Do you think Jesus’ challenge to James, John, Peter and Andrew at the sea of Galilee to follow Him and become fishers of men translates to the world of social media?

Can we really reduce our relationship building, personal care, active listening and selfless service to a post, a Facebook Ad or a Twitter feed.  Is this really what “Go into all the world…” means?  Too often I am tempted daily to do just that.  It is less messy, less involved and easier to turn off than having relationship with real people, in person.

God forgive me for treating your church like a business or a marketing campaign and for trying to expand your kingdom within the noise of the world.
