I am channeling Jude today. The epistler famously wrote of feeling “the necessity” to write how his readers should “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 3). His plan had been to write regarding their “common salvation.” Similarly, though not by inspiration, I was feeling the urge to write regarding the strange compulsion toward selfies in our culture (a less noble topic, granted). But amidst my angst, I think I may have found some sympathy. And I find myself writing something quite different from what I had planned.
