It's true that technology brings humanity closer together in ways that used to be impossible. Technologies like the smart phone, FaceTime, Skype, Instant Messaging, texting, etc allow us to communicate with people across the room, or across the planet.
But, at the end of the day, people need love. The need the love that only comes from Christ, being poured out in our lives. And sometimes that means putting down the tech and truly connecting with a person on a very intimate level.
In this video, the father tries to use technology to calm down his child. He even makes a video call to his wife, in hopes that her appearance will have a calming effect on the child. Eventually, he realizes what it will take to calm his child down, and the result will take your breathe away.
Wildfire season is back in the Wenatchee Valley. Please stay turned to sites like the Wenatchee World for the latest information on fires, affected areas, and evacuation notices in the community.
With these fires displacing people from their homes and impacting their lives, there's an abundance of service opportunities where you can plug in. If you want to volunteer to help out, and cannot find anything, let me know. I'll be happy to help you get plugged in to help!
