Let’s keep talking

On Saturday evening, October 12, about fifty of Ascension’s friends and family gathered in the Parish Hall to eat pizza and delicious side dishes while enjoying jazz music that played in the background. After the children and youth were dismissed for their program, the adults gathered to hear Dr. Grant Martsolf present a trenchant analysis on the way the digital world affects us through the use of our phones and our social media. After the talk an active discussion and Q&A took place with a panel of parents from different life stages.

Many participants asked if we can continue the conversation and we are glad to offer “Parenting in a Technological Age: Part II” on Saturday, January 25th from 5 – 7pm. If you would like to sign up, you can do so using the online registration available here.  For more information, please contact Alex Banfield Hicks or Catherine Slocum.
