Project Interfaith will present “Digital Faith, Digital Family: How Technology Shapes the Spiritual Lives of Families,” as part two of its three-part parenting series.
“Digital Faith, Digital Family” is open to all community members and will take place on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at First Central Congregational Church (421 South 36th Street, Omaha, NE).
The cost to attend is $10 for non-students and $5 for students with student IDs. Childcare will be provided at no additional charge.
As technology advances so too do the avenues with which parents handle the spiritual development of their children. “Digital Faith, Digital Family” will educate parents on these up-and-coming strategies and techniques available for cultivating spirituality in their children and families and will create discussion about the challenges and successes related to these modern-day methods. The program will feature a panel of technology and parenting experts followed by audience Q & A.
“The spiritual development of our children doesn’t just take place in Sunday school anymore,” says Project Interfaith Program Coordinator Sierra Pirigyi. “Technology plays a daily role in our lives anymore. The internet places information at our fingertips; it is making the world smaller by connecting people across the globe.
More and more, parents are using this technology to teach their children their spirituality and faith.”
“Digital Faith, Digital Family” is co-sponsored by First Central Congregational Church.
