The Fear of Disconnect – FOMO

It would be a fair statement to make that we live in the ultimate era of connectedness, in a society where pretty much everyone makes use of at least one social media platform to ‘stay-in-touch’ or to ‘keep up-to-date’. There are countless platforms to choose from and you can even earn money from them if you can work out how to do it really well.

Give Yourself Pause

“To share, or not to share: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To like: to not like…”

This featured image captures the story of a generation: an obsession with sharing information and, sadly, evaluating its worth based on the response of public opinion.

Millennails, Gen-Xers, Boomers – we all do it.

Our Soul Aim


No Comments

Hurtling as we are towards the bridge between the end of one year and the beginning of yet another new one, our “reflective, creative, dreaming” hat is firmly in place. 

As just one part of this, clarifying our ‘soul aim’ will help us to help you as much as possible.

So, what is the soul aim of Firebrand Notes? Quite simply, to:

“Help every viewer to love Jesus as they should

We have some mega news coming up in the New Year about our latest media resource that, more than two years in the making, promises to smash up any form of spiritual boredom or apathy or confusion or illiteracy about how to live an effectively Jesus-riveted life for the glory of God.

  • Do you have a smart phone?
  • Do you love crisp, digital media?
  • Do you want to live for the glory of God?
  • Do you want to be as fruitful as you’re supposed to be?
  • Do you want to help people to grow in faith?
  • Do you want to read Matthew 28 and have inner peace that you’re doing what Jesus wants you to be doing?

It’s our soul aim this coming year to help you ‘tick’ each of these ‘bullets’ as your next 12 months begin to unfold towards another ‘year wiser’…all by awesome design not lazy default. 

We’re praying that we’d all learn to love as we should

Would you be up for tracking with us?
