I’ve followed my parish priest’s homilies online for several years, never imagining that one day he’d be stationed at my parish. Father is quite tech-savvy; he has a blog, an Apple watch, and a Twitter account. One day, to my surprise, he “friended” me on Facebook.
Now, I’m careful on Facebook. I try to remember that anything said there is said in a public forum, so I try to follow the Grandma Rule, considering whether I’d be OK with my grandmother seeing something I post on social media. If my posts would pass the Grandma Test, they’d pass the Pastor Test as well.
Would you “friend” your parish priest on Facebook?
