Fred Peatross, from Huntington, West Virginia, is a friend of mine that I’ve never met in person. Our relationship is facilitated by e-mail. I live in California. We became friends because of Jim Henderson who lives in Seattle, Washington. West Virginia, California, and Washington—this is a great picture of our times.
Fred’s new book, Missio Dei, is an insightful look at what is happening in Western culture, particularly as it relates to disciples of Jesus. Twenty years ago the e-mail relationship Fred and I have developed would have been unheard of. Also blogging, Google, My Space, and social networking.
