Zoomed Out – Zoned In

Passage: Psalm 104:19 – 23 Proverbs 6:9- 11 Luke 10:38-42
Service Type:

Bible Text: Psalm 104:19 – 23 Proverbs 6:9- 11 Luke 10:38-42 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | If you would have asked me back in February, how many video conference meetings I have had, I would have said maybe four or five in the past six months.  Now my daily routine consists of one video meeting after another — all day long!!! It’s fascinating how tiring this can be.  “Screen fatigue” is a real condition, and it happens because we have to use a whole different set of communication and connection skills. Those skills are requiring us to spend long hours online — in meetings, sending emails, or looking at reports — versus when we used to meet in person.

Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate the technical resources that have helped us keep The Garden ministry going. I am also very thankful that I have had a way to connect with my family in the US and the UK during this time. Having the ability to see the grandchildren and our parents on a screen is simply amazing!

But there has to be a way to find a balance.  If we spend too much time inputting, and no time decompressing, it can become overwhelming.  Join us Sunday, as we explore how our faith can guide us in finding a balance for work, play, and rest.
