Tech News and the Church

I found this article describing the way that a college professor has been impacted by students who have a social (or maybe social media) agenda. It says, “the experience left a mark on Ruberg, who says they’ve become more hesitant to include material about gender, sexuality, and race on their syllabuses. They’ve become wary, in some ways, of their students.”

Churches are not free from people with these same agendas. How do we respond to this cultural reality? Do we become hesitant? Careful? Overly Brash as an attempt to counter the movement?



Some other good platforms for Online Courses

I hate ads, but I have to pay bills. If you would like to help support me and my family financially please check out these companies that I have an affiliate relationship with (means that buying their services won’t cost you extra, but will pay me a little money). Bluehost web hosting, 8×8 VOIP phone solutions, and Carbonite online backup solutions are the three products I recommend even if people don’t use my affiliate links. I use them myself. Feel free to click the link and explore even if you don’t plan to buy.
