I Can Deal with the Doctrine of Atonement, But What About Facebook?
I am falling behind the times faster than I thought. It seems that all my children, nephews and nieces, all adults, are on Facebook. But that's not all! So is my wife, my banker, and Barak Obama. And they've all got these lists of friends. I wonder if my nephews and nieces think it's odd to be "friends" with "Old Auntie D?" What do I have? A half dozen theology nuts, a guy named Geezer and a few others who sometimes leave anonymous comments. Obviously there is something I'm missing here, but the odd thing is, I don't really care very much, and that bothers me too. Isn't this something I should care about? I wonder if Martin Marty is on Facebook. If he is that may be just the thing that tips me into it, or onto it, or whatever you call it.
