RevGalBlogPals is now on Facebook. You can visit our page here. It's a public page, so you don't have to be signed up for Facebook to see it. We'll use the page to promote posts from our blog. If you "like" us, you'll be able to post to our Facebook wall to ask questions or make comments.
Our 2nd Monday Discussion topic for April will, appropriately, be Facebook. Lots of churches and even more pastors are using Facebook as a ministry tool. But pastors, most of us, don't stay forever in one ministry setting. As Facebook has become more universal, it's clear we need to talk about whether to keep those Facebook "friends" when me move on to a new call. Do you really want your Facebook wall covered with posts and comments from your previous congregation while you're trying to get to know a new one? If you decide to "de-friend" people from the congregation you're leaving, do you notify them or just disappear from their lists? What's the etiquette?
I have some ideas, but we want to hear yours! Please share your Facebook stories in the comments, and be sure to stop over and "like" us, too! We have 180 fans just since Saturday. Many thanks to Mary Beth Butler for setting up the page!!!
