I retired from my pastorate 6 1/2 years ago, which means that the young people I knew as teens in junior high or high school are now in college or beyond. I have "friended" a number of them on Facebook, and find that in too many cases their use of language, their references to their recreation, their obvious taste for alcohol, and in a couple of cases their producing children out of wedlock all suggest that we did not do a good job of producing young disciples. It is heart-sickening to think of the youth programs, the teaching, the preaching, and all that we did ... and of course most of them made professions of faith and were baptized ... yet the evidence is very negative for many of them. I keep quiet and do not attempt to "correct" them on Facebook. I am not their pastor any more and I know that doing so would likely at its best only correct the surface issues. The real issues are in their hearts and minds.
