A quick update from my last blog about the pros and cons of Pokemon Go. I have received a couple of thoughtful, provocative links that explore the spiritual implications of the characters etc. in the game. Not being familiar with the specifics, I didn't cover this aspect in my last post. I wanted to offer two of these here, which I felt were well worth the time and energy to read, particularly if you have children. Just click on the title to read more:
Is Pokemon Evil? (Charisma Magazine)
Is Pokemon Safe for Children: A Christian Perspective (Erika Dawson)
Finally, on Friday, July 29th, I will be doing an hour-long interview with Chris Fabry and we will be talking about Pokemon Go, plus technology in general as it relates to our spiritual lives. You can listen to it live by clicking here. (3pm CT, 1pm PT)
