Technology Trends

Globally, there are over 500 million 15 to 19 year olds and they spend $100 billion per year!

  • Apple Computer has sold 42 million Ipods with 14 million of those being sold during last Christmas
  • 80 million MySpace users and 270,000 more joining per day
  • 164 million cell phones were sold in the 2nd quarter of 2004 alone. Conservative estimates are that by 2008, more than 380 million camera phones will have been sold worldwide.
  • There will be an estimated 100,000 “hotspots” globally by the end of 2005. 34 percent of Americans chose the Internet as the most "cool and exciting" medium -- 1 percent less than television. The numbers were much higher among 12 to 34-year-olds, however: 46 percent voted the Internet as the "most essential" medium to their lives, while 29 percent picked TV.

But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Cor 13:8

My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord or loath His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. Prov 3:11-12

Jesus Over Time

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:38-39

What’s Your Path?

For the law made nothing perfect, on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. Heb 7:19
