We recognise that the information age, despite its numerous advantages, also has detrimental effects on our pursuit of truth, meaningful relationships and overall physical & mental wellbeing. Therefore:
Instead of uncritical embrace, we practice great discernment.
Instead of unrestrained engagement, we practice great discipline
We commit to reading Scripture at the beginning and end of the day, rather than starting and ending our day with our devices.
We commit to disengaging from screens of all kinds for one hour a day, and one day a month.
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”
“God we recognise you as our ultimate authority, and your words as the ultimate source of truth in our lives. Help us to live wisely in our information world, be discerning in our engagement with media, and be connected deeply to the people you’ve placed in our care”
