The Church and the Age of Screens

Screens are everywhere.  Wether its teenagers snap chatting or adults reading their Bible from their phone during the church service, the challenge of screens and the distraction they cause is a threat to the church that Alan Jacobs recognizes.  He writes,

“The church need not repudiate, or crusade against, digital communications technologies. But it cannot allow its – our – habits and practices to be determined by the massive multinational corporations that control these technologies, and have their own agendas for how we use them, agendas that care nothing for the development of true personhood in Christ. In all this the church must accept and embrace its status as a fully countercultural institution. It need not seek to produce persons troubled in mind or conscience; but if it cannot produce persons who have minds and consciences, it will surely die.”
