Technology is an inescapable part of our lives, and the world has a lot to tell us about it. But what does God say? Does the Bible have anything to teach us in this area? The answer is yes!
In this six-session series with Jim Samra (originally presented on Sunday nights at Calvary in February 2014), we explore what it means to rewire our lives to God’s truth and to live faithfully in a technological world.
For each session, you will find an outline with notes to complete as you listen to the teaching. Following the notes are discussion questions for you to use in your community or small group. In addition to these tools, you will find “Parent Corner” and “#TechTalk” sections each week. Hopefully they will be a source of encouragement as you seek to use technology wisely. Finally, at the end of the booklet you will find a resource section that includes additional tools such as books and helpful websites.
