One of the principles in social networking is that when people are better connected, they are more individually and collectively productive, cohesive, and resilient. Scripture uses words like "all parts of one body" 1 Cor 12:12 and "carry each others burdens" - Galatians 6:2. Being a follower of Christ doesn't just mean having our own spiritual burden lifted from our shoulders by Christ. It means actively seeking out those who need help, and shouldering their burdens with them. Service, empathy and connection to non-members is a critical part of the Christian faith. Agree or ????
