The Flu Monster, The New York Times, The Drift And This Weekend
The flu monster has been on the extended-stay plan in the Seidman household the last couple of weeks, taking down three of the five of us. We’re on the mend though! And I’ve already achieved my weight loss goal for the whole year!
In today’s New York Times, there’s an article titled “It’s Time for Apple to Build a Less Addictive iPhone.” This follows a story last week about two prominent Wall Street investment giants making a similar appeal to Apple on the basis of its responsibility to the well-being of children.
I don’t know what you think about this idea, but I’m fascinated to see these kinds of stories, particularly in the midst of our current series. “How we live with technology is the cultural issue of the next half-century,” said James Steyer, the founder and chief executive of Common Sense Media, a nonprofit group that studies how children are affected by media.
We’ll wrap up our three-part series “Present: Learning To Be Where You Are” this coming weekend. If you missed either of the first two messages, please make some time to listen/watch. In this final message, we’ll be touching on one of the oldest stories in Scripture about technology, how people drift off-course when it comes to technology, and how we can get back on track when we drift.
We’re called to flourish and not to flounder. Let’s be aware of our tendency to drift. Let’s honor the sacredness of others. Let’s be fully present.
See You Thursday or Sunday!
Grace and peace,
