I wrote this a few months ago, but then I didn't publish it. I wanted it to be as good as possible. Well, I may never publish it if I just don't go ahead and do it. It's imperfect. Email me if you want to talk more about it.
A few months ago my wife and I chose to get off of Facebook (I have pretty much gotten off of other Social Media already). I don't know how long we will stay off. I hope it is for good. My intention is not to imply that other people should get off. There are many great uses for social media. In fact, I'll share some:
There is a lot I could say about the privacy concerns that go along with big tech. Those of you who share those concerns with me, don't look for me to enumerate them here. I think I would distract from this post. Perhaps I will do a post on this sometime in the future.
Naturally, for me personally, my concerns with Social Media out-weigh the benefits, and thus I have gotten off.
I know there is much more that could be said. However, I'm not writing a book on this, and I am seeking to give the most important considerations as they apply to me at this point in time. Some folks will not benefit from this. Others might. For those who are my friends, I invite you to email me and let's talk! Even better, if we are able, let's talk on the phone. The best of all, let's go to coffee (er um tea for some of you... even ice cream for the rest of you... I'm sure we can find something...).

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
