  18. 18. NELSON MANDELA Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn‟t serve the world. There‟s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won‟t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It‟s not just in some of us, it‟s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

  29. 29. WHY BE ONLINE? @FRDAVIDCLOAKE Whilst I cannot conclude my thinking in a wholly positive way, I acknowledge that great use of all of this to my own personal discipleship. I am a broader Christian, a better informed Christian, a more readily supported and sustained Christian and for that I love this digital life. If that makes me a better Christian, then perhaps its purpose is served if a purpose exists and indeed if a purpose is needed. However, I shall continue to pray that someone, somewhere, can say with absolute clarity that because of this digital community, they came to Christ.

  37. 37. END ON A PRAYER Father, Creator God,
You sent your Word, Jesus Christ, to reveal your love and compassion to the world; you have called us to be his disciples, true images of your beloved Son,
proclaiming his Gospel to all creation.
His story is now our story.
Keep us faithful to what we have received, and generous in our sharing.
Holy Father, we thank you also for the gift of the Holy Spirit
whom you sent to sanctify and bless all you have created
and be the bond of love that unites all of us with you and your Son.
Send forth your Spirit upon us now.
Purify our hearts and make us attentive to your promptings
that we may be true missionaries in the digital world.
Grant us the humility to seek you above and before all other things
that all we say and do may be done in your name and for your glory.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen http://www.ibenedictines.org/2012/10/21/a-prayer-for-the- christian-new-media-conference-cnmac12/ // @DigitalNun
