Do you have nomophobia?

Find out if you have the condition that means technology is taking over your life.

You might be asking, "What in the world is nomophobia?". I did too. But when I found out what it was, I realised I may have it. We know a 'phobia' is a fear of something which can cause anxiety and stress. Usually, the amount of stress or anxiety doesn't correspond to the level of danger that actually exists - and so it is ultimately irrational.

But Nomo & what is nomo? Nomo is an abbreviation for no mobile phone. The term was created after a study four years ago found that 53% of mobile phone users in Britain tended to be anxious when they lost their mobile phone, ran out of battery or no longer had network coverage. So nomophobia is the fear of being out of contact with your mobile phone! Stop now and think & what if you lost your phone? Did that just cause you panic?

How you know you've got nomophobia

Do you:

have an inability to turn off your phone?
take your phone to the bathroom (full disclosure  I do)?
obsessively check emails, texts, facebook, twitter, etc.?
Technological advances are certainly great but with studies showing that we check our phones on average 34 times a day, maybe we have gone a bit too far. Just Google nomophobia and see all the news. A recent article in New York Daily News describes the issue, interviews a subject, and shows a nomophobia assessment. What is most shocking however is a statement made by one of the people who has this fear:

I feel like the virtual world is more real. Thats the world I want to engage in. I cant even imagine only checking my phone once an hour. I just feel like thats my whole universe.

Check your technology use

Have you become obsessive about checking your phone? Do you sometimes feel that the virtual universe is more real than the actual universe? If that sounds like you, here's a few suggestions:

Check yourself and limit your own time on the phone.
Question what is having the greater influence on your life: technology or Jesus?
If you are becoming isolated, withdrawn and depress, you may need to seek professional medical help.
It may seem silly, but we have to honestly ask these questions regularly and check the influence our technology has over our lives. One day, you may look back on your youth and wish you had spent more time with God, family and friends. You will never look back and wish you spent more time on your phone.

Bible Scavenger Hunt Questions

**************************

Teens Corner:

The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:3 that as we grow in our knowledge of God, through his divine power he gives us everything we need for life and godliness. Jesus relied on the Word of God alone to overcome obstacles, including the devil. God's Word is alive and powerful (Hebrews 4:12), useful for correcting us when we are wrong and teaching us what is right (2 Timothy 3:16). So, it makes sense for us to carry God's Word in our hearts through memorization, to be ready to face any problem, every difficulty, and whatsoever challenge that life can send our way.

Spend time in God's word DAILY!

Bring a Friend on Sunday Nights
5:00 - 6:30 pm


*******************************

Our first week of study we talked about Jesus calling his disciples.
The first he called were Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew, then James son of Zebedee and his brother John.  These men were fishermen.  Then were called Phillip and Bartholomew (Nathaniel), Thomas, Matthew the tax collector, Judas Iscariot, Simon of the Zealot, James of son of Alphaeus and Thaddaeus, and Matthias replaced Judas Iscariot, then Saul of Tarus became the Apostle Paul

******************************
Our Second Week we talked about becoming fisher's of men.
We made delicious chocolate chip pie to share with Pastor Arturo.
Our scripture memory verse for the week was:
and Jesus said to them; "come and follow me and I will make you fishers of men.  Matthew 4:19
*******************************

Our Third week we talked about who God is and how much He loves us.  We used foil impression of our faces to show that no two of us are alike.  God makes us just as we are and He knew us before we were born. He has great love for each of us and even knows the number of hairs on our heads.

Our scripture memory verse comes from John 3:16: 
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that who ever beleaves in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

This week are snack was a delcious donut sunday's complete with chocolate syrup.  We also made foam art crosses for the nursing home residence.

**************************************************

 We'd love to have you visit us Sunday Evenings

Bring a friend along!
