Yes, I posted The Innovation of Loneliness in Reclaiming ConversationsÂ (9/12/2013) when considering some of the work of Sherry TurkleÂ and offeringÂ Transformative ConversationsÂ as a resource.Â But the recent attention given to Saving the Lost Art of Conversation: In a fast-paced digital age, an MIT psychologist tries to slow us down (Megan Garber. The Atlantic. 12/22/2013), an extensive amount of time on-line in the midst of the holidays, a lengthy conversation with one of my teenage daughters about the influence of technology, and the encounter of meetingÂ John HundleyÂ (ESN blogger) in person when at InterVarsity Staff Conference 2014Â leads me to once again offer this piece for your reflection as we (individually and as a network) prayerfully seek direction in the new year. More in the notes and in future posts, but feel free to get things moving by sharing comments below. . . .
