Keeping pace with today's technology

Rick Dearborn

Whether you feel overloaded by all the information that’s coming at you, or are thrilled by the opportunities it presents, you’ll find some solid spiritual tools to work with in this lively, fast-moving chat. Rick Dearborn says the important thing is to keep everything in balance. He notes that even Jesus, who was out healing people every day, took time to leave the crowds and spend time in prayer. And he says we have a right to have that balance also.

Rick responds to questions about how much technology we actually need; how to overcome the feeling that one can’t work with technology; how to deal with computer viruses; and how to conquer addiction to computer games and other influences. He also comments on questions about technology’s effectiveness in business and on working with employees who are resistant to it.

A theme that runs through the whole discussion is the importance of loving God and loving your neighbor. Rick discusses how letting these inform your decisions will bring balance and harmony to your work with technology.
