Last week I got this note from a “friend” on Facebook:
I just want to thank you for accidently adding me on here. You have so much faith, that it gives me faith. So, thank you 🙂
Crazy story here… I was trying to add a friend from Pennsylvania and accidentally misspelled her name. The result? I befriended another person. Someone I didn’t know. Now I get this note from her… someone I don’t even know.
I love Facebook for the following reasons:
- It allows me to interact with all kinds of people. I have friends who drive trucks. I have friends who are gay (one is a trapeze artist in Las Vegas). I have friends who are fundamentalist Christians. I have friends who are not Christians. I have friends who are old. I have friends who are young. I have friends who are black. I have friends who are white. I have friends who travel around the world. I have friends who work in fast food joints.
- It allows my friends to interact with each other. Often times my friends have pretty vigorous debates about something I’ve said. I love it.
- It allows me to be a pastor to people I’ve never met. Just last week I spent some time talking with a lady who’s husband has violated her trust in a very significant way.
- It allows me to see how other people live.
- It allows other people to see how I live.
So I really like Facebook. It’s an online community that I’m proud to be part of for these reasons.
How about you? Are you on Facebook? If so, send me a friend request.
I’d also love to hear what you love about Facebook.
