Can you imagine Curious George with an iPhone? The silly monkey would be…,well, changed. He would be different. Silly monkeys are not the only ones changed by technology though, because technology is never culturally neutral. Technology has been changing people and culture ever since Adam took his first breath. Join Eric for a romp through Scripture and culture to explore the nature of technology and a biblical response. Our discussion will impact your personal and work life; your private moments and public actions; your spiritual growth and your service to God.
