This article gives us reason for pause:
What do college students in China, Chile, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Uganda have in common? According to a new global study by the University of Maryland's International Center for Media & the Public Affairs (ICMPA) and the Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change, they're all addicted to media. That might not seem like news—after all, there's a reason the term "CrackBerry" came into being—but just how severely students are addicted is startling, and has real implications for our schools where Skyping, blogging, learning-via-gaming technology is increasingly the norm.
How do we engage an audience that is quite immersed in the world of technology, social media, etc., and bring them into a real, physical and emotional relationship with other humans, and even more importantly, the real and life-giving presence of Jesus Christ?
Just as in all things in our current state of being, we should be "in the world, but not of it."
Another side note: If college students are so addicted to media, I can guarantee that many, if not most, have had a large amount of exposure to pornography. This bodes ill for our cultural values in the coming years.
