Ep. 157: Surgeon General Warning for Social Media Harms

In this episode, Kelly talks about the U.S. Surgeon General’s opinion piece in the New York Times, calling for government warning labels for social media. Dr. Vivek Murthy points to the need for adolescents and parents to understand the risk, but this should be a warning label for all of society! Kelly expounds on 2 Cor. 6:14-17 as a call for Christians of all ages to reconsider their partnership with social media and their witness to the watching world.
