My Space Budrio - Club for teens

Today we had a great day @ the My Space club for teens in Budrio.

We learned that online, it’s all too easy to pretend to be someone completely different from who we really are. We can also find ourselves gaining our sense of identity in how people respond to us online.

When we’re online, it’s really easy to say something harsh or outrageous. It can feel as if it’s all unreal somehow and like there are no consequences to what we say and do. We can find ourselves saying things we’d never dream of saying in real life. The trouble is, when we say something, there’s no way of taking it back. It’s like trying to get the toothpaste back in the tube. And that’s just as true online as it is in real life. Our words on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram can hurt people or encourage them just as much as anything we say to their face.

In this Rock Solid session we pointed young people towards God as the only truly reliable source of our identity in Christ.
