Family Bible Time – at Home…

A New Family Discipleship Tool!

Curwensville Alliance believes that discipleship begins at home, so we want to equip parents and kids to grow together in their faith, to talk honestly about how God’s word is speaking to them, and to pray for one another regularly at home.

“You Can’t Reboot Childhood” -Steiner-Adair

screenshotIf you know me at all, you know I am not an “alarmist”. And if you know me at all, you know I enjoy technology. So this may seem an odd post, because it seems to be alarmist concerning technology.

While I was hunting today, I was listening to a podcast from thevilliagechurch.net, and heard them interviewing Catherine Steiner-Adair regarding her research for her book, The Big Disconnect. Steiner-Adair has some important things to say about the effect our use of technology has on our children — and our relationship with them. She also addresses when and where to permit children to engage technology.

The second portion of the podcast is about Thanksgiving. You can skip that, if you like, but if you interact with children, the first 39 minutes of this podcast may be important for you to hear.

And, yeah, I did not miss the irony of me using technology to alert you to a potential problem in the use of technology. 😉

The audio from the podcast is here.
