This week Curtis Ramsey-Lucas published a provocative article in The Christian Citizen asking important questions about Facebook’s outreach to faith leaders. He begins:

I don’t know about you, but I have a relationship with Facebook that I call, “problematic.” What will it mean if Facebook becomes directly involved in the lives of faith communities?
In this podcast, I interview Curtis and get the background on this article, his questions surrounding the issue, and a pointed discussion on the future of social media.
