If you want to get a hold of me then email it, blog it, text it, facebook it – but DON’T call me! My phone is always on vibrate. I never answer my phone (just ask Mark).
Is this bad for building relationships?? NO, NO, NO!!! We actually invited a couple to church over facebook last week! They came, we ate lunch, they got excited about ORCC and now they are offically connected – and it all started online. Oh yeah…the best part of this story is that the couple is in their 50s!!!
I keep up with my friends all week long by reading their blogs. I text my husband sweet nothings in the middle of a meeting. We get people coming to church over facebook.
When I do finally see these people face-to-face, I am sure that I pay attention to them and it becomes an authentic connection in person (you can’t leave that part out).
Yes, I love technology!
