    Hi, I liked your article. Firstly, for pointing out that the people with which we interact online are our neighbors. I also liked ideas on how to measure your response, and that it is ok not to “defend” God’s position while on line. He can perfectly do it, right?! That gives me a lot of relief. Sometimes best to only offer your understanding/sympathy of pain or loss, and pray for them privately, than to try to change a heart that’s not ready. I also like the idea to honor the person by really trying to understand what they are saying, and to maybe reflect that back to them. Joy
