Today is the first meeting for The Real Modern Family Life Group. I am excited and nervous at the same time. God put this Life Group on my heart to lead. It is the combination of two things that I have a passion for, ministry and technology. I love to help people. Ministry and tech is two areas that I enjoy helping people in. The intention for this Life Group is to use technology for the Christian advantage.
We live in a high tech world and Christians need to keep up with the times. Often technology is looked at like something evil. Technology is used correctly can be one of the biggest tools we as Christians can use. The are countless resources at our disposal. Resources to help guard unwanted material reaching our homes, ways to connect with not only fellow Christians but non-believers, and a way to spread the hope that is within us.
Part of the content we will be covering is from the “Culture of Honor” by Danny Silk. This reading will help cultivate and develop a Kingdom perspective learning how to honor others. I believe that this will help set the tone of an effective way to each out to others.
Today is an introduction day and setting the tone for the group. The agenda is:
- Talk about techie questions and subject that anyone might have
- Talk about different ways we currently use technology
- Discuss what we learned from the first chapter of “Culture of Honor.”
What are some ways that you use or have seen technology used for the Christian advantage?
What specific resources do you know of? Take a few minutes are search for some new resources.
