John, a new missionary, made an urgent Skype call to his Pastor
I need to talk to you. I have just had a row with my language supervisor.
What was it about John?
Well he was asking me to do something that was contrary to what you want from me as a church and I said that it was the church that sent me out and that I must obey them.
The Pastor wondered what the language supervisor had demanded that was so contrary to church policy. His mind began to speculate on various heresies that might have been urged on his church’s young missionary, but then John spoke to him again:
I’ve been told to stop tweeting, using Facebook and writing my blog. I said that you had told me that I must make sure that I communicated regularly with the church and kept in touch with all my friends if I want them to continue to support me. No way was I going to stop using social media to keep in touch with you all.
