I’ve been putting off creating a formspring profile for about a year now. This week I took the plunge. It really is a simple concept. Your friends/followers can ask you a question, and then you answer it. Or you can ask others questions, and they can answer. With anything on the net, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Sadly, it could be used to share with the world things you wouldn’t even share with your mother, but probably should share in the Sacrament of Penance. Or it can be used by Christians to “always be prepared to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but [to] do it with gentleness and respect…” (1 Peter 3:15-16)
Father Shane Johnson is doing just this. So far he has been asked about the morality of artificial contraception, why does God allow suffering, accountability, faith without works, and the formspring standard questions of, What made you smile today?
I would encourage you to check it out. And maybe you have a question for Father Shane.
