A few weeks ago, I posted a blog about Facebook and the possibilities for networking via this popular tool! I also posted some warnings about security while using Facebook. I continue to be amazed at the number of folks using this ever growing media to connect and network about Celebrate Recovery and share their lives, changed lives.

Mac Owen, our National Assimulation Coach, wrote a blog about the networking successes he has personally witnessed via Facebook and the numbers of folks showing up at his local CR because of Facebook conversations or connections. Wow, God can use anything in a big way, if we just invite Him to do something miraculous! That is what we are seeing, God at work as we connect with friends and family. Go God!
I want to encourage you to connect with us on the National Celebrate Recovery Facebook page. The National Team is using it as another means to keep people informed about what is happening across the country. It is so inspiring to read the reports of individual ministries and also uplifting to read the testimonies of individuals who have posted sobriety dates. Others offer words of encouragement to the readers.
There is also an increased presence of state, regional and individual Celebrate Recovery pages. Pages have been started by various individuals wanting to connect with smaller and more specific audiences. Some are using it to connect with just the leaders in their ministry and others to network ministries in larger cities or even states. How exciting that we can encourage one another in so many ways.
Well, I hope you can tell that I am excited about the wave that Facebook is creating in and of itself. Remember to keep the confidentiality when sharing information. Facebook is not the place for deep sharing, but a place of social connection.
God bless each of you as you begin your week!
