Guests: Billy Graham,
In 1998 there was no Facebook, Instagram or iPhone, but that year Rev. Billy Graham addressed a crowd on the topic of technology and faith. Listening to it, we were intrigued by how spot-on his points were, and still are — more than 20 years later. We’re sharing his message with you this week; listen as he predicts our frustrations with technology, details the problems that technology will never solve, and reminds us to forever prioritize the gospel over our smartphones.
Technology. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. How can we develop good habits and boundaries when our phones and social media feeds scream for our attention? Our panel discusses Billy Graham’s points in the Culture segment, talks about our own bad (and good) habits for digital engagement, and gives you strategies for owning technology without letting it own you.
Everywhere she goes, she notices the shiny diamond rings and sleek gold bands on other people’s hands. In return, she feels like judgmental eyes are boring into her for having an empty ring finger. Is she imagining things, or are folks sizing her up and labeling her a spinster? Should she start wearing a purity ring on that hand? But what if someone assumes it’s a wedding ring and doesn’t ask her out because of it? Lisa Anderson offers advice.
