Media on the Brain

Media on the Brain

 "In the next 24 hours, humans will text 188 billion times, send 144 billion emails,  google 147 billion  times, download 30 million apps, Skype for 2 billion minutes, write  2.1 million blog posts, and tweet 400  million times" -The Hyperlinked Life, Barna  Group. 

 We live in a world of digital and information overload, and a natural question that  arises from such  statistics is: "How is this technology and media affecting us?" As  Christians, we want to be good stewards  of the technology that is so prevalent in  today's society. 

 Scott Ritsema, from Belt of Truth Ministries, will be presenting Media on the Brain this  coming Saturday,  June 14. The schedule is below: 

  8:15 AM-TV, Gaming, and Your Brain 

  11:00 AM-Raising the Remnant (See description below)

  Potluck-Everyone is invited to stay for our Fellowship Lunch

  2:00 PM-Documentary Film, Captivated 

  3:15 PM-Conformed to the Counterfeit Reality  



Raising the Remnant 

 Over 75,000 parenting books have been published in the last two  decades alone - that's nearly 10 books per day! Indeed, opinions  on parenting abound, but are there any solid facts to be found?

 ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIVE DATA THAT IDENTIFY THE  KIND OF PARENTING MOST LIKELY TO PRODUCE  SPIRITUALLY STRONG YOUNG ADULTS?

 Yes! Recent research has indeed painted a remarkably clear  portrait of the character, values, and practices of parents whose  young adult children are now thriving spiritually. Raising the  Remnant not only reports on these George Barna research  findings, but also uncovers that this very same traditional advice  was given in the 19th century!
