At 46 years I thought that social networks were a thing for young people only. Oh, not at all!
A five-day training – from 10 to 14 August at the Mariapolis Centre of Man in Côte d’Ivoire – drived by a brilliant Italian woman skilled on social networks, Fiorella Marini, with the help of three friends of her, let me introduced into the world of Facebook, Twitter and so on…
As a priest, these media certainly will allow me to proclaim the Gospel through new ways, launching for example a parish blog where all the parishioners will be in communication one another and with the entire community for all the pastoral needs.
In this sense, I have found them as an answer to my pastoral concerns. Social networks, thanks!
For all those, like me, that think to be too old to use social networks, put aside fear and embarrassment! We have no excuse anymore to say that it is difficult to communicate.
A word to the wise is enough!
