Some of you know I have pages up on MySpace and FaceBook. It’s an easy way to keep up with trends and thoughts (and photos) of — ahem — “younger” friends. (Besides, I always did like a good Food Fight!)

This morning, however, I was caught off guard when I noted that a couple of my MySpace buddies have “Jesus” as a Top Friend. Actually, as their #1 friend. So… I went and read the person’s page. They seem like honest, God-loving types. They don’t think that they are divine, just that they worship One who is.

The kicker came when I clicked on the “add as friend” button… and the dialogue box came up:
“do you want to have Jesus as a friend?”

Possibly seen as sacrilegious by some. Possibly seen as fanatical by others. I found it intriguing that the God of the Universe would be portrayed on a MySpace page.

Guess we need to change the words of the hymn:
“Let ev’ry MySpace page prepare Him room…”

Or… maybe not…
