Dear Facebook Friend

The following is an excerpt from a fictional letter imagined by Brian Ford:

You keep telling me it’s not about religion and that’s it about a relationship. But…if it’s about a relationship why haven’t you invited me to your youth group or church? Why haven’t you told me about this Jesus you SAY you have a relationship with? And if connecting with what you call “non-believers” is SO important, than why am I just one of your 500+ Facebook friends that you never actually speak to or see in person? Doesn’t your Jesus tell you to love others? So how is sending me invites to something in the virtual realm showing me love and pointing me to the eternal realm you say you’re living for?

I think I will read this letter in our Sunday morning gathering sometime this month. It’s not just a good reminder for students, it’s a good reminder for all of us, whether or not we spend time on Facebook.
