The circle of (social media) life

Here's what is on my mind today. Honestly, it has been on my mind a lot lately but it came into focus quite a bit today.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2, NIV)

Why? Well, let's follow the circle:
I read an article in the latest Relevant magazine on by Brett McCracken.
Carlos Whitaker wrote a post on his blog about the same article.
Tony Steward sent a tweet saying that he commented on Carlos' post.
I went and read the blog post. I realized it was about the same article.
I left a comment on the post.
I went back to a tab in Firefox that I had open to Conversant Life.
I noticed that Brett McCracken's name was attached to some movie review articles on there.
This reminded me that I probably followed his blog in Google Reader. So I opened it up and checked to see if it was the same guy.
It is the same guy so I went over to Brett's blog.
Brett's most recent post was about Romans 12. Especially verse 2.
I write a little blog post about how social media connects the dots.

Just goes to show you how God can use anything and anybody. Peace.

And now I'm commenting on your blog post, so the circle is complete :)
In all seriousness, I'm glad to have sparked some interesting discussions about all of this.
Peace to you.

Brett, great to see your comment here. Thanks for being a participant in the great circle.

Your post has led me to spending time in Romans 12 and digging below the surface.
