facetime/online relationships

Recently received a couple of different emails related to this ongoing discussion a number of us are having about the nature of online relationships. If you haven't been tracking this, see

online and facetime relationships


I sent a note to AKMA yesterday.

Dan Brennan has been giving this some thought as well and has been reading Patricia Wallace's The Psychology of the Internet and offered these thoughts recently in the faithmaps discussion group.

In response to my post of 26 July - babeltower or community, John Edmiston sent a sobering caution to the faithmaps group. Interestingly, JV provided a similar caution in his comments on the post. Surely the heightened optionality of online relationships is something with which we must take care to be consistently Christian.
