Being a youth pastor makes me feel like a social media schizophrenic*. If you’re like me, you’re constantly switching between personal and church accounts on Twitter and Instagram, always running the risk that pictures of your family reunion are accidentally plastered on the church Facebook page. What you need is an alternative way to post pictures on Instagram.
“We all need someone to believe in us. We all need someone who knows our mistakes, and loves us anyway.”
I recently went through a purge of Facebook friends, trying to remove people I rarely interact with. (I’ll wait while you go check if you made the cut.)
Facebook creates relational clutter. It’s life support for relationships that would have naturally died years ago.
We miss you.
I know it may not seem like it. We seem fine without you and you probably have convinced yourself that it doesn’t matter that you haven’t been here for a few weeks, or a few months. Honestly, if we had the time we would personally knock on every student’s door on Wednesdays just to make sure they were going to join us that night. Please don’t think that we don’t care about you just because we’re ok without you. That’s not how it works.
