It was my birthday the other day, and it was well celebrated on Facebook. As I read through the birthday messages, I marvelled at those who had taken the time to wish me a happy birthday.

I heard from folks that I had attended junior high, high school and university with. There were posts from colleagues in Canada, Australia, the US and several African countries. There were greetings from people I know well, people I haven’t seen in forty-five years, and a note from a gentleman I met in line at Budget Rent a Car in Port Canaveral eight years ago.

And while the birthday wishes were fun, they were also a reminder of how far my social media presence extends and that the words and memes I post on Facebook will define not only how people view me but how they view Cornerstone and Christianity. It’s never been truer that I may be the only bible some people read.

Most of you know my philosophy about arguing online. It’s like wrestling a pig, you both get dirty, and the pig likes it. But the reality is that you and the pig won’t be the only ones who get dirty. It might be the church and Christ as well.

Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
