Are You a Social Media Voyeur? [From the Table #3]


The world of social media encourages a social, relational voyeurism, Jerry Sittser suggests. We prefer to look on, and be looked upon, rather than to interact and be present to the moment. But Jerry has discovered a very effective treatment for this: adopting spiritual disciplines in a community, intentionally fasting from technology, and seeking to live in the present moment. Jerry Sittser is author of A Grace Disguised, and professor at Whitworth University. Music: “Higher Still” by David Arnold/Cinema Cycle (cinemacycle.bandcamp.com)
