Beyond talk—spiritual growth
The Christian Science Monitor
The talk-show format is thriving these days on radio and television. Some of the conversation seems simply to appeal to people's supposed appetite for sensationalism. The other day, for instance, I heard a minute or two of a well-known talk show, which discussed a form of promiscuity as though it were both acceptable and amusing. There didn't appear to be any real purpose beyond a desire for high ratings.
Unfortunately, millions of people are daily taking in a steady stream of this kind of chatter. This is an issue worth considering. How often are we taking in or talking about images, opinions, concepts, that are of no benefit to us or to humanity?
