Bible study Oct. 25 at Sonia’s

Hey, everyone, I hope you’re having a great week! Too bad the cold weather has come in with a vengeance… Anyway, this Friday night’s Bible study will be at Sonia’s place. Please email me at r.e.fuller[at]gmail[dot]com for the address. We’ll do snacks and drinks at 7PM and start the discussion at 7:30.

Tammy will be moderating this week, and our discussion will be about the impact of modern technology on our spiritual lives. How does the “ultra-connectedness” of the modern world bring us closer or keep us further from God? Do cell phones, iPads, video games, video on demand, social networking, improve our spirituality, or are they a detriment? Or is it even that simple?

I found a few articles that at least provide some food for thought. It seems that they tend to slant toward the negative side, so I’d be interested to see if you guys can think of some points in defense of modern technology 🙂
