Coming Closer: Experiencing and Offering Sanctuary in a Hyper-Connected World

Christina Crook

Christina Crook's book, "The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World," has made her a leading voice on technology and human flourishing. Through her writing and speaking she reveals how key shifts in our thinking can enable us to draw closer to one another, taking up the good burdens of local work and responsibilities. She writes about the value of focus, making space to create, and the meaning we find in more limited connections. She challenges the Western values of power, control, and success, revealing how wonder, trust, and discipline are central to the experience of being human and the keys to our joy.

What Time is It? Why Christian Education Matters Today

Doug Sikkema

In Comment, we explore the intersection of public technology and social architecture: what Scripture and the Christian says about how we are to build institutions (in this case, educational) for the time and place we are given. In this workshop, we'll explore the big question "What time is it?" and look a bit closer at the increasingly significant purpose of Christian schools for our age.

The Joy of Missing Out

Christina Crook

The average person spends more than two hours a day on social media. That's 5.5 years over a lifetime. If we cut that by even 40%, you'd be getting back two years of your life. What we regret most at the end of our lives isn't missed tweets or fancy job titles. It's the deeper things—missed opportunities to love, to explore our curiosities, and to spend our time well. In this workshop, thought leader Christina Crook will help you identify your blind spots, rewire your online habits and help you from surviving to thriving by reconnecting to what truly brings you joy.

The Christian School: The Relational School

Rob Loe

Whilst the idea and premise of ‘relational health’ being a vitally important aspect of a school’s culture is widely recognised, relationships between teachers and students, and students themselves, can often go ignored if unmeasured. In an extension of the ground-breaking work conducted in Australia for CSA in 2018, culminating in the report and documentary film “Connecting Stories: The Relationships that Shape Christian Schools," Dr. Rob Loe will unpack RSF’s new study of schools in Australia. Engage with the findings, enjoy a screening of some of the latest documentary footage, and hear from research participants.
