The Blog Tour Spot is hosting a book review/discussion on the book Flickering Pixels.I was sent a free book for review. The purpose of this review is to facilitate discussion. So I am going to post a bit of my thoughts and hope that you will share you thoughts with me. This is really interesting stuff.
The basis of this book is how technology shapes our faith. The influence of the things from the invention of the printing press which has its positives and negatives to the Internet. There are so many very interesting insights and it is well worth the read. It is very informative as well and helpful. It is important that we keep our eyes open of the things that we need to be aware of that hurt our faith and our walk.
With that said I want to discuss this issue. I have been pondering it a lot lately and it was in the book so I want to know your thoughts. It seems that I am in contact with many more people than I normally would be without things like Facebook, the Internet, texting, cell phones, and etc. Because of this I have many more relationships. However, I realize that this "convenience" often gives me the excuse or illusion that because I have all these connections I do not really need to be as intentional in my face to face relationships. However this is a lie. Our face to face relationships are vital to us. Have you experienced this at all? How do you handle this? If you have younger children in the text generation have they ever formed good one on one relationships? Please share your thoughts on this.
