We Still Love Social Media—Filters, Fakers, Hashtags, and All


Dec 6 2013
Our digital connections are far from perfect, but we can’t give ‘em up.

Perhaps our angst over social media could help us to notice how social media both satisfy and fail to satisfy our longing for community, and, in so noticing, figure out what it is we're really craving. Embodied communion around real tables, with friends and family, in real life? A deeper connection to God? Maybe just a little silence and stillness? These are questions worth asking before logging on—or when debating whether to unplug altogether.
