You know the old saying that the sky is the limit? The idea is that we can keep going and going because there is nothing holding us back.

In the video below John Green asks,
Can you be a Christian without damning those who aren’t?
It’s not a question that we as Christians should ask ourselves, it’s a question that we need to ask ourselves daily.
Could you live without your smartphone, Facebook or Netflix? This question had been asked by many writers recently but Cal Newport’s latest book asks a far more pertinent question. Are these technologies helping you support your values and could something else support them better? This question is central to the technological philosophy he presents in digital minimalism. I believe this question is very important for Christians and churches.
Because mental health and the church are something I’m passionate about, Blessing challenged me to write about it. The conversation of mental health is not new to me. It’s been my job for the past six years–I’ve worked as a clinical counselor in two different community mental health centers, one in Colorado and now in Ohio. I’ve pushed my voice into the conversation of mental health as it applies to faith with ChurchAndMentalHealth.com as I try to be a resource to churches and their members.

Either way, this is a conversation you’ll want to join!
