Church: Tech Wasteland
Many adults and teens would like to receive guidance from their churches on media and technology, a Barna Group study revealed. The problem is, most of them aren’t getting any. The study shows that most parents and tweens/teens (children ages 11 to 17) expect churches to address technology, but â€œmost families are not getting any coaching or assistance when it comes to integrating technology into their family life.â€ â€œTechnology is shaping family interactions in unprecedented ways, but we seem to lack a strategic commitment to the stewardship of technology,â€ Barna Group President David Kinnaman says in a report explaining the results. (Via Charisma Magazine.) So… is the church missing the boat here. Â Do parents really want to hear advice on technology from the church? Â Should the church be helping people navigate the computer/tech world. Â Why or why not?
