The Bishop Wants To Be My Friend
…Or at least he wants to be my facebook friend. The request came through last night and it has left me rather conflicted.
On the one hand, I really like my bishop. He hasn’t been bishop very long but he has always been friendly. He often says nice things about my babies which is always a sure way into my good graces. His family lives directly behind us and they have graciously put up with the lovely screaming phase my Monster is in right now. That is, I’m almost positive it wasn’t them who called the police on us. Also, his youngest daughter is my favorite babysitter.
On the other hand, by adding him as a facebook friend, I give him a direct link to my personal blog and then to this blog. I have not written anything at either place that would get me in trouble but I wonder if giving him access would have a censoring effect. I feel that I already self-censor a good deal but I would hate to shy away from writing about difficult topics for fear that I’ll get called into the Bishop’s office.
Now I may be humoring myself that he would even care. Also, my bishop might already know about my personal blog as it seems to be a pretty open secret among the ward. (Thank, Mom!)
So what would you do? How do you deal with new technology changing your interpersonal relationships?
