If you’re like most Americans (increasingly most humans), chances are the first thing you saw this morning when you woke up was the screen of your smartphone – and chances are that’s also the last thing you’ll see before you go to bed....The digital era constitutes one of the most powerful and sudden shifts in the conditions of lived experience that humanity has experienced, one whose meaning and logic we are still coming to grips with. Accordingly, a faithful Christian response will require a willingness to undertake a fine-grained analysis of the habits into which our new digital tools are shaping us – and where we might need to push back.

The re-ordering of our disordered habits must begin in a determination to seek rest in the right place, or rather the right Person, and in his promises.
