Jay Kim is a pastor and author in Silicon Valley and a previous guest on episode #206. I invited Jay back to discuss his latest book Analog Christian: Cultivating Contentment, Resilience, and Wisdom in the Digital Age. In this conversation, Jay shares the situation we find ourselves in with technology, what’s at stake if we do not use wisdom to handle it, and practices that can help get your freedom back. Jay encourages us to be wise about what we allow to shape who we become so we can be shaped as Jesus would have us.

Great quotes from Jay:
Every human being is being formed at all times.
If my enslavement is forming me, my guess is that the way it’s forming me is very different than the way Jesus wants to form me.
Love atrophies when it’s not in motion.
