STAYING CONNECTED

THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

"DON'T YOU LIKE TO BE CONNECTED?" a friend of mine asked. We were discussing the relative merits of new electronic media, including social-networking websites and other Internet-based services, and how they're changing the way we get and share news.

"Of course I do," I replied. But I also told her I find that the barrage of instantly available information, much of it inane, threatens to divert my attention from what I need most—time to think deeply so that I'm ready to respond with healing ideas when others call on me to pray for them.
