Wednesday U: September 13-27

Parenting Conversations on The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age, by Steiner-Adair, Barker*

Wednesday U will kick off on the 13th of September with a three week series about parenting in the age of mass media and digital living. Wednesday the 13th will be an introduction to the book that we will be using to guide our conversation, and on the 20th and the 27th we will be sharing in conversation around selected chapters from the book.

Join us as we engage in this serious conversation about navigating relationships and daily life, as faithfully as possible, in this digital age.

(*This book is approximately $10 and can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. We will have several copies available at church on that first Wednesday as well.)
