Mediated by Technology

Here are a few interesting topics for you to check out this week.

How should Christians respond to the Olympics? Are the only two choices to embrace them along with their humanistic emphasis, or to denounce them as a project of the rich and powerful? David Wells suggests there is an alternative.

At least one group has discovered the alternative – the hundreds of cyclists from across Canada who are participating in the Canadian Bible Society’s Bike for Bibles event. The event is raising funds for Olympic New Testaments and resources for sharing the Gospel at the Olympics.

Now, turning to parenting.

Parenting isn’t what it used to be. It’s all because of technology! With social networking like online chatting and text messaging, communication has become so entertaining that we sometimes surrender relationship to be mediated by technology. What does that mean for parenting? If you want to stay in touch with your kids, it’s worth embracing the new technologies, says Captain Kim Walter writing for Salvation Army’s Faith & Friends magazine.

And also, mission and outreach.

Canadian Christianity reports in their news briefs that the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a relief and development agency for most Mennonite denominations, is facing considerable cutbacks due to a shortfall in giving. Let’s pray for organizations such as this, and perhaps reach into our pockets to share a little extra with them so their work can continue in economically difficult times. The world needs them. We are featuring a story this week of a young Muslim man who was severely injured in a conflict-related accident. The MCC supports the YMCA that has given him hope.

And here’s one more. You may also want to read how a young man born and raised a Muslim learned about Jesus through a series of encounters that changed his way of thinking.
