iLife: Living Well in a Digital Age
An evening for youth and young adults to look at the shaping effect and impact of digital technology. We are living in digital times. Our lives are characterised by constant connection, unlimited information, and a cultural story that promises power and potential through our technologies. Are social media, SMS, Google, and online gaming merely tools we seek to use wisely and safely as faithful disciples? Or do they tell a shaping story—impacting us at a deep level—merely by existing and being woven into the fabric of our lives? Are they, perhaps, still impacting us even when we use them wisely and well?
There are blessings to be celebrated and great opportunities to bring God glory, as we embrace digital technologies. Chris will provide food for discussion as we consider how to live well in a digital age—bending iLife towards iShalom.
