Sometimes God displaces us and sometimes we choose displacement to survive, thrive, or walk in obedience to God.

Now more than ever, there is a prophetic call on our lives as children of the Creator God to be set apart from the ways technology can turn art into an idol. I am not advocating that we as Christians walk away from the art of this world. But I do have some suggestions for how we can live responsibly into this call.
