The acceptance of social media in recent years is stunning. Everything from news programs to cereal boxes prominently display their various links. In many ways it’s a strange new world, but to many of us it’s quite normal.
I’ve heard it said that Facebook is like a reunion. People get to connect at length with friends, family or classmates they haven’t seen in years. Some say Twitter is like a water cooler. You have a short time to exchange ideas with a wide variety of people on a wide variety of topics. To carry the comparisons, blogs are like living rooms. The fact that you visit or subscribe to a blog shows that you have an interest in the specific topics and/or personalities. Blogs are the place where Facebook and Twitter topics often settle down for more serious discussion.
Ok, complete change of subject from recent posts, but I have to share.
I have used Evernote for almost two years now. It’s a cool program, and I’ve used it for some interesting things, but it’s not until recently that I’ve really started incorporating it into my daily routine.
Worship is the total response of people, heart, soul, mind, and strength, to an object of our attention. It is also the sacrifices, the rituals, by which we express this response.
I think our worship is probably mostly our instinctive, gut-level response to things. That is not to say that we should not plan to worship, or learn how to channel or focus our worship purposefully. I’m just sayin’ that we worship instinctively. It’s not a question of “if,” it’s a questions of how, when, and why.
