This past weekend at First Baptist we launched our Connected 3D Campaign. The main focus of this campaign is for individuals and families to use technology in a God-honoring way. Our Pastor of Family Ministries did a great job challenging us on 3 D’s: Disconnect to connect, Deepen internal values, and Develop external boundaries. To assist you in this focus we have created a Connected 3D kit. If you were not able to pick one up this past weekend, see the resources section at the top of this page.
Connected3D Prayer: Stop whatever you are doing right now to spend a few moments in prayer for yourself and your family using the following...
· DISCONNECT TO CONNECT: “Lord, help me to recognize when to put my device away and connect with You and with those closest to me.”
· DEEPEN INTERNAL VALUES: “Lord, I choose to honor you with how I use all areas of technology.”
· DEVELOP EXTERNAL BOUNDARIES: “God I will not allow technology to be used in an unhealthy way by myself or my family. Help us to create some new boundaries in our home that are appropriate for our family.”
Over the next 8 weeks we will post updates with resources, tips and encouragement. We hope they will help you and your family to replace virtual connection with real connection to God and each other.
