10 Great Things That Happened in 2012

New Arm1. I got a new prosthetic arm. It is a process that I only tackle once every ten years or so. It involves much research, many decisions, a huge financial commitment, lots of trips to the prosthetics facility, and a challenging adjustment period. But it’s done and I am pleased with the results. I’m glad I did it in 2012 and don’t have it to look forward to in 2013. 🙂

Facebook Can Be Fun or Facebook Can Be Fatal

Instant… Global… Permanent…

These three words describe our comments and pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. Think for a moment about the magnitude of that… instant… global… permanent. I don’t know about you, but that sends a rush of fear through my heart. So much so that I wrote a “Social Media Policy” for our staff at Crosspoint Church. Because it translates well on a personal level, too, I thought I’d share it with you.

  • Keep it clean. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 says, “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”
  • Keep it nice. Respect people. Don’t engage in negative dialog or word wars.
  • Keep it private. Don’t vent personal frustrations.
  • Keep it neutral. Refrain from political opinions. We don’t want to alienate people we are trying to reach.
  • Keep it short. Proverbs 10:19 says, “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.”
  • Keep it smart. Think before you post. You can’t take it back. Ask, “Is it helpful? Is it needed?”
  • Keep it fun. It’s ok to have fun and reveal your personality!
