@Pontifex and the #SabbathSelfies


Oxford University Press announced that the word "selfie" has been added to the online dictionary of the English language. In case you were wondering, selfie (plural is, of course, "selfies") is defined as: "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website." I bet at this point, you're asking, "Why does this matter for the church?"
