Screens: Navigating the Digital World



On January 9th, 2007 Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the I-phone to the world. I think you would agree that EVERYTHING changed at that moment. Our world is in the midst of the digital revolution. In the scope of history, there have been a few of these "seams of history" moments when change happens so rapidly and expansively that it's hard to even fathom the impact. I believe we are living in one of those "seams" of history. Whether you call it the "digital revolution" the "age of information" or something similar, there is no doubt that what our world has experienced since that 2007 announcement is truly historical. Just as the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century brought about significant cultural shifts such as a massive migration from rural settings to urban centers, in the same way this digital revolution is bringing about rapid change.

It's easy to get overwhelmed or caught up in the strong current of this digital revolution. Sometimes we just want to avoid it, other times we may just decide to fully embrace the ride and not consider where it's going to take us. Either way, wisdom would compel us to consider how to navigate life in the digital world.

Jobs are changing, parenting is different, growing up as a child in this world looks nothing like a generation ago. It's the air we breathe today so we need to adjust and regain our bearings.

What steps can we take to be "intentional" in all of life in this new digital world?

Please make plans to join us on the evening of January 9th as we explore together the topics of screens, technology, social media, and much more. This night will include relevant topics for all ages so please bring the whole family.
