Cyber Space is much like a desert. There are those who sound the trumpet on what is important to them. After some time, they disappear and sound another trumpet to go off in another direction. But there are those who continue to wander, not aimlessly, but with purpose. They are rounding up the troops becoming fishers of men. To some, they seem like outsiders but really they are peacemakers.
Technology has given the little guy an opportunity to sound his trumpet and to voice everything from when he brushes his teeth to when he tells of some kind of disaster in his life. The playing field is level but with that there are more and more people “doing their thing.” The result is much more stuff for people to wade through to get the nuggets. However, there are a few “John the Baptists” that articulate a strong message that the masses can relate to. It’s not all about things “in da club.” We’re getting beyond that.
The buzz word of the day is community. Can there be community up in the clouds of the cyber world? Definitely! I mean, really. There are those that live for Justin Bieber’s every last word on twitter. They may be a little bit misguided but that’s community.
I wrote a song called “Leave the Desert.” Maybe I was a bit misquided.
Matthew 5:9English Standard Version (ESV)
