Enjoyed the morning session. ED SETZER in "The Brave New World of New Media" mentioned that the population of Facebook is larger than the USA. Social Media, he said, can assist in creating community, but is no substitute for the church; he has concerns that the wrong people are "drive-by posters"--that important things are trivialized--that this is a false community that can't cover over to our houses--that narcissism and pride can be promoted.

TIM CHALLIES "Principles for Conduct in Communication" also expressed concern that social media lets people go "beyond Gibraltar" thereby lacking accountability. Speaking, truthing and loving need to be guarded. People who post anonymously often show immaturity. He said we need to be real, visible, slow to speak (write), and to strive for godliness.

BURK PARSONS "Taking Captive New Media for the Church". 1. Make the best use of our time. 2. Set our minds on heavenly things. 3. Use media to edify, to stir people up to love and good works. 4. Use media to maintain unity and purity of the church. No gripes. 5. Subdue the earth and and fill it with the knowledge of God. 6. Use media to glorify God. 7. Don't use media for our own kingdom--glorify His kingdom. Ask, "Are you using media to glorify God"?

AL MOHLER "The Hypersocialized Generation". He talked specifically about the teen obsession and recommended that parents not allow a cell phone in bedroom at night and no Internet-connected computers in the bedroom. We are missing two realities he says: 1)silence for prayer and directing our mind; 2)book reading. We fill our soul with distractions. We have lost the ability to empathize by reading facial expressions. He challenged the church to be both connected and faithful.

An excellent panel discussion followed.
