Most of us know that the internet can be hugely distracting, but do we think about how much it plays on our emotions and anxieties - particularly at Christmas?

 

If you believe the news reports and marketing hype, the pre-Christmas season is one of dark Fridays and web-manic Mondays.

 

Until recently, Black Friday was to bricks-and-mortar stores what Cyber-Monday, is to their online counterparts. (Nowadays, more people do their shopping online across both days.)Click for more

What’s your view?

Do you do most of your Christmas shopping online?

Your Feedback
I think you asked the wrong question re climate change summit. The question is should it have been held? There are a lot more important issues they should have been discussing, e.g. people trafficking.

Hey, thanks for the great articles, it is a blessing to read you
Paul, Norway

Your article about Daniel in Babylon is spot on. As 21st Century Christians our challenge is to find appropriate forums to join the conversation & refrain from adopting a defensive posture.
