We’ve focused on addictions over the years, ascribing some sort of addictive element to the “bad thing.” The thing itself right? Video games, drugs, porn, alcohol and so on. The drop-down menu for addictions is long.
But what if….
What if a larger ingredient went unnoticed in all our deliberations? In all our calculations?
Apply this to technology and the effect it has on community. From technology’s assault on empathy to its tendency to replace face-to-face contact.
In the hyper-paced culture of tech- where social media isn’t all that…..social, where human contact gets mediated through machines and where many of us choose to live “elsewhere”- the intentional life becomes powerful. A deliberate priority of community and relationship.
