I guess what I’m struggling with is this… Do the comments made on blogs truly reflect the condition of the authors heart?
If so, then I see two sides to the coin… on the one hand, we have a unique view into the hearts of our teens (and adults for that matter) that we don’t always get to see… again the anonymity of the internet at work. This could provide unique opportunities as well to minister to those students more strategically.
The other side of the coin… We have a unique view into the hearts of our teens (and adults for that matter) and we get to see a side of those people that isn’t as pretty or postured in public… resulting in what I have felt at least recently disollusionment.
Okay the third side of the coin… third side what? Anyway, teens could feel like they are being checked up on causing them to not be honest online.
And finally the fourth side of this neverending coin… nah… I feel like I’m flooding now, not just overflowing.
