The use of social media has the potential to be used for a lot of good. Amidst these times of uncertainty, we can use social media to encourage others and share messages of positivity, from a safe distance apart.
I sometimes like to share a Bible passage I have just read, because it is meant to be shared. When I need to stay positive, I look to make someone else positive—albeit it is not as impactful as greeting someone in person, and in turn receiving a smile.
We live in a self-centered society, so perhaps the sharing of church gatherings and volunteering could imbue someone with the desire to go to church.
My activity on these networks has been intermittent for the past few years, and I have even resented using them, because of all the “empty calorie” quality of content. Once I saw a member of my parish use it for good, however, I have since changed my view.
I still detest the abused freedoms of the internet, lack of censorship, and exploitation of human dignity (pornography).
