We love our social media platforms. The information, the approval, the connection — everything. But is your use of social media on the verge of ruining your real-life relationships? Do notifications, beeps and bubbles pull your attention away from the people right in front of you? Do they skew your priorities, even when you don't want them to? Our panel discussion shows us how to stay informed and connected to the digital world while still keeping the people we love as the main thing.

If You're Happy and You Know It

Guests: Lisa Harper

[23:24] - 

Life is hard. Stuff in our own lives as well as turmoil around the world constantly threatens to undo us. Is it possible that we can be happy in the midst of so much chaos? Lisa Harper, author of "The Sacrament of Happy," says it's not only possible, but that God designed it that way. Knowing what we have in Christ, Christians are called to contentment, joy and wonder in the big and little details of life. And sometimes we have to quiet the "Pharisees" in our lives to understand that.
