Some Saturday Links

Keeping up on the world is important. As Christians, we need to continue to impact the culture, but to do so, we must know what is going on in the culture. To that end, I’ve made the habit of reading a couple different blogs a day, and keeping tabs on a couple of different news sources (national/worldwide and local). A little thing called an RSS reader is a nice tool to consolidate all of these sources/blogs into one program for you. If you’re a Mac user, NetNewsWire has been my choice for a while now, and I’m quite pleased with it.

To that end, here are some links that I found interesting this week.

I like Facebook. I’m on there quite a bit, but there are dangers associated with it. Many of you are on there with me, and if you have any kids over the age of 13, you certainly have kids who are on it. Here are two articles that are worthy of reading: How many friends are too many? AND Some possible effects of social networking sites.

Here’s an article about teenage computer habits. This is for Britain, not America. But my guess is if the same survey were replicated here, it wouldn’t be all that different.

An interesting little mock article about what would happen if Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians were published in a magazine to Christians today.

I also like TV. But we all know TV has dangers as well (all good things can be devils…that could be a whole blog in itself…no time now, though). Here’s a study about teenage TV use and its effects. My guess is that it isn’t just true for teens.

Happy reading…
