I listened in on a conversation between friends a few days ago.
One friend said, “I think the Internet is great for research, for learning about things, but I do not think it is right for people to be able to connect with each other as readily as they do across thousands of miles. I do not think that is the way things were supposed to be.”
Normally I chime right in, say how I feel. But I remained quiet. As shocking as this might sound, I was lost for words.
For whatever reason, tonight I stared at a map of the United States. And then I remembered the conversation.
I looked at the map and thought about our connections. We really are scattered about. Far and wide. But are we?
I thought about how we learn from each other. How we share in bits and pieces of our daily lives. How we can operate a business from home, doing what we love, holding onto our dreams.
I think about my friends that do ministry work online.
I cannot fathom any of that being a bad thing.
I feel rather blessed.
How about you?
