Some people don't get it.
They don't get my fascination with communicating in 140 characters. They don't get what compels me to expose my most intimate struggles, dreams, and fears on a blog. They don't get my motivation for allowing strangers to become followers and friends.
No. Some people don't get it.
They don't get my Masterfully cobbled together community. Where distance is meaningless, age is irrelevant, and a mutual longing for uncovering the future where faith, purpose, and passion intersect is ultimate. Where friendships are not marked by years of shared history, but by sharing authentically in the present.
No, Some people don't get it.
And that is fine.
But, for the record, real community happens online. Just like real community happens in life.
And God is there, right in the middle of it, with a big smile. But don't take my word for it…
"Remember this: if two or three of you come together as a community and discern clearly about anything, My Father in heaven will bless that discernment. For when two or three gather in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
Matthew 18:19-20, The Voice.
