The Church of Facebook

facebook wrong I’ve always had an eye towards how church can learn/ remember about its mission looking at business models.  It has often been suggested how we as Church could learn from the “third place” (not work or home but similarly familiar) models of Starbucks. – Javalleluia!

Now, Mark McNees has offered a blog series on how the culture of facebook out churches the church in several areas and how we might learn from it.

1: It is all about the life of the participants.

2: FB culture is very open to ‘friending’ new people.

3: The FB community does not have business hours.

4: On FB, we are is eager to share life with one another.

5: On FB, we encourage the expression of one’s passion.

We need to be able to turn the practices of our virtual reality into the habits of a virtuous life.
