A Quote on Faith Lived Publicly

I put this in an e-mail to a friend, but it also seems something with sharing, given the topic and this reality of the public-personal space.

…questions about where we are spiritually deserve a conversation in the public space, but only after we have settled them in the closet space with God. To be loud first publicly of our stance makes us to be the hypocrites in Matt 6. Social media is a filter and a lens, and deserves to be an outlet yes… but perhaps the in ability for others to know that we’ve used it to be a filter challenges Matt 6-like thoughts in a way that we aren’t all ready for. Not ready for the kind of faith Deut 6 once said should very well be public facing.

A life lived in public challenges more than just internet connections and privacy policies.
