The Tongue on Facebook, Twitter and Social Media

If you have not been living under a rock, then you are already aware of the insanity that has laid waste to social media. Am I talking about the U.S. Election and its aftereffect? Not quite, it’s the angry and divisive tone of many conversations on Facebook and Twitter.  People are getting offended because someone does not agree with them.

What has been the tragic results? It has resulted in a lot of hurt feelings and shock. How dare that person have an opinion different than me!  Sounds familiar? This is not a beat up; rather, I’d like to offer an alternative.

Rather, it’s a book full of timeless wisdom that readily be used in today’s society. I believe that you’ll find this particular pearl to be quite useful in your daily life and on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

The Mountain Path

A couple of months ago, I came across the following passage in Galatians 6:1-3. As I considered it, I asked Jesus, “How do I do this in the right way?” I have rarely seen the finger-pointing method work. What did Jesus say? The answer starts with a journey on a mountain path.
I would give you the Bible verses that prompted the question and lead to the answer in Galatians.; however, I do recall it. Here is how Jesus answered my question.
In my mind, I saw a group of travelers walking up a mountain path and it was nearly dark. I could see that the guide had a powerful flashlight and it lit up the path in front of the travelers.

What Is S.Y.M.O.T.A

Image result for set your minds on things that are aboveLast week, I decided to take this blog in a new direction.  For one, I created a new menu item called “S.Y.M.O.T.A”.  In Colossians 3:2, Paul instruct believers to “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on Earth. What does this mean? How does this relate to my blog site and current events?

If you’re a regular visitor then you may ask, “When did you ever cover current event or issues on the Church?”  I will answer that question in the next paragraph.  If you are a newcomer then I would suggest that you keep reading and wait for it.  I need to give a little background before explaining anything.

Get a DIRECT copy of my book!

bookcoverFor the past few months, my book has been available on Amazon.  For some reasons, the book does not fair well on Amazon.  However, it seems to do fairly well when it’s sold through a book signing or left at my brother’s restaurant.

I would like to try something, a little different.  Have you heard of a company called Square?  They  provide low cost credit card processing and business solution for people like me. You can find out more by going to http://www.squareup.com

What does this means to you?  If you would like to order an unsigned copy of my book then you have two options.  You can go to Amazon and order my book, online.  On Amazon, you can buy a printed copy for $7.00 or an e-book for $3.99.

Here’s the links for the two versions:

 

There is a second option!  How would you like to order a book, directly from me?  I won’t be able to send you a signed copy, though.  You can reach me, at my  email address:  barry.brindisi@gmail.com  Put in the subject line that it’s a book order!  In the body, I will need to have two things.  Where am I shipping the book to?  How many copies?  My books are printed by CreateSpace and I have to consider shipping costs.  So, I am limited to the United States and Canada.

IMPORTANT:  If you  are ordering 1 to 4 copies then I will need to add a $2.50 Shipping & Handling fee. I will waive the fee for an order of 5 or more books.  The book will still be $7.00 per copy.
