Technology is part and parcel of our lives and whether we have realised it or not it has impacted us deeply. Teenagers growing up with smart phones are addicted to them, and almost all of us carry this computer in our pocket that is more powerful than our desktop. The most significant advance in the way we communicate since the invention of the printing press has happened in our life time and we want to know how to honour God with it. This series looks at what the whole bible has to say about technology, and specifically how it affects our relationships and time. Whether you are a luddite or an early adopter God has important things to say to us as we navigate through this complicated area.
We live in a culture which is constantly searching for more and never seems to be satisfied. More money, more time, more of a buzz, more facebook time, more, more, more. This more culture can seep into our Christian world and make us think there must be more to Christian life than Jesus. Paul is writing to a church that is tempted to move on from him, being promised greater spiritual highs elsewhere. Paul wants the Colossians to know that could not be further from the truth. The way to move on is by not moving on from Jesus, because you cannot get better than him
We are living in turbulent, volatile, fearful times. Like the people of Isaiah’s day, we can be tempted to turn to and trust in all the wrong things. Join us as we work through the introduction to Isaiah and discover Good News for Turbulent Times

Listen in to some answers to those BIG questions.
