Register Now. Join myOCN Interactive Virtual Community with Fr. Christopher Metropulos and guest Dr. Randa Anderson on Thursday, 8/5 at 7pm EST as they discuss the balance between our on-line and in-person lives. Focusing on what was weighted toward the digital world for the past year during COVID lockdowns. People are now struggling to break their tech habits and rejoin their in-person communities.
This has been especially challenging for our youth who were isolated from their friends and cut off from their extracurricular activities during the pandemic. In this online event, we will explore how technology has been both a blessing and curse during the pandemic, how to assist our kids in forming healthy habits in their tech use, and how our Orthodox Church practices can help us manage our digital lives. We will also look at the impact of technology on mental health and discuss the exciting new projects of the Task Force on Mental Health of the Assembly of Bishops.
