In February 2014, I had the opportunity to speak with our Berean Baptist Church "Families Under Construction" class. The class is primarily families with children, and the ages range from newlyweds through near-retirees. Then in May 2014, I was honored to present the material to the entire congregation in two Sunday PM services, entitled "Technology in the Christian Home".
