I fall into a weird generation. Sometimes I get categorized as a millennial; others I am labeled as Gen X. Then you find out about micro-generations and I get lumped in with those. The bottom line is this: I remember a day without the internet in my house, and exactly when we finally got dial up and all of its fun noises. Technology had arrived!
Once my family had entered into the digital world, a lot of our outlook had changed. We were now able to connect with people all over the world with a single click. We had access to information previously we’d have to hunt for in a library—let alone having to drive to the good, academic college’s library across town. Everything was nearer and instant.
Fast forward to the last year with the pandemic. Obviously internet speeds have increased, but the concept remains. We found ourselves within a click of a button away from meetings, groceries, books, friends, and everything else we can imagine. Our digital age allows us to do so much.
We saw the value of our digital world during the pandemic. Coworkers were a Zoom meeting away. Even my small group was a Zoom meeting away. In a time filled with disconnection, there were ways we could connect digitally.
So why go back to the way things were? Why not embrace the technology and adapt how we live our lives? My small group from church went online almost immediately and, while it felt different in the beginning, we continued to be a part of each other’s lives.
That’s why we at Bible Studies for Life are excited to introduce our new digital curriculum platform to help you deepen your group study. It makes ministry easy.
