Real connection – Pastor Robert

We live in a wonderful time. We as humans have accomplished so much with technology. Tech is great! However it is also bad. Today’s technology is supposed to bring us closer together. But what it has really done is drive a wedge between us. A great wedge. A chasm. Social media, texting, etc. has caused major problems in our society. Young people don’t look each other in the eyes anymore. They have traded real dates at coffee shops with texting each other all night. We have traded real friendship with fake friends on line.

It’s great because it follows Jerry and his chosen friend for the day riding around in great cars talking and then they end up in a coffee house and talk some more. We could all learn from this. Its something people have been doing since God created the earth. Well maybe not getting coffee and driving around in million dollar cars, but relationship. Relationship is what we are built for. Real relationship. I challenge you to this week put your phone away. Leave it at home. Just grab a friend and go out for lunch. Go for coffee. Connect with each other. Nothing compares to real friendship.[/read]
