Goodbye, unfriend? Social media bring new challenges for pastors in transition
from Associated Baptist Press
About a year ago I resigned the pastorate of a church where I had served for 13 years. Leaving a ministry well is important, and I wanted to do it with integrity. This required having the conversation with my church leadership about the ethical boundaries that would guide our relationship into the future. All of this was familiar territory to me. But then reality struck: a lot had changed in 13 years, and one big change was the advent of social media. How do "separation ethics" for pastors apply to the use of social media?
