Changing the way we think

As part of the work for my DMin I have been doing some thinking and reading about the impact of the digital world on the way that people think. I came across this cartoon that I have used in Scripture Union stuff recently.

Last week in the times there was an opinion prompted by the launch of the iPad. It’s well worth reading and the link is here. There is also a video that is worth watching. The quote has made me think most is this opne picking up the comparison between kayaks and dug out canoes. There is also a useful link to a website here

“We used to be kayak builders, collecting all available fragments of information,” writes Dyson. “Now, we have to learn to become dug-out canoe builders, discarding unnecessary information to reveal the shape of knowledge hidden within.”

So how will that impact the way we communicate the good news and what are the implications for Bible engagement?
