Continuing the trend started with “GodTube” (which took the YouTube trend and made it more wholesome by allowing only videos which “encourage and advance the Gospel worldwide”), now the folks at MyChurch have created a social networking site (a la MySpace or Facebook) for churches.
Why can’t believers just be salt and light within the original, much more popular, networks—why must we create our own little Christiany enclaves? And why aren’t we—the followers of the Creative Genius and the ones who are supposed to truly understand community—coming up with these things in the first place? I’m tired of imitating the culture. Let’s either create it or revolutionize it, but enough with watering it down and making it safe.
