Tech Wise Sermon Series
WEEK 2 | HEART, SOUL, MIND, STRENGTH

“Talking about countercultural formation: “Nothing easy forms us. So, everything that forms us in some respect is hard. Maybe another thing we have to say to one another by way of encouragement as we go along on this tech-wise journey is, ‘This is going to be hard for all of us—parents and kids—but it’s going to be good.’” — Andy Crouch

“The most important formative things in our lives are full of risk, and they’re full of meaningful difficulty. They require me to go someplace where I’m not fully safe – whether emotionally, sometimes physically – where some aspect of my heart, soul, mind, strength, is not just being protected, but is being put at risk.” — Andy Crouch
