    This is so very true. The reality is that this is exactly why Pope John Paul II began his papacy with the phrase “Be not afraid”. Fear is paralyzing and stops progress right in it’s tracks. In my opinion, if we are afraid of simply being offended (and something that could easily be removed as well online especially under a system you control) then we should shut our doors to the world. But the problem is . . . that’s not Christianity.

    The focus needs to be on planning and setting roles. If you have a plan and have identified who is monitoring your social networks and media you’ll avoid these issues. So rather than fear the worst, plan for it and that way you will be better able to address any possible issues.
