'Pokémon Go' craze sparks a new culture of encounter

Did you know that over 21 million people are playing this 'new' game now?

When my son said to me that he was walking over to the Catholic church across the street from where we live... my first thought was that I was not hearing him correctly. Why would my young adult son be going to church on a weekday after getting home from work? He has not been to church for sometime because of his crazy work schedule...So, why now, I wondered?

Then, I discovered 'Pokémon Go'. The new free-to-play game app that in some technological-way brings together both worlds: the virtual, and the real world we live in. My son was going over to church to meet up with others because the church grounds were a designated Poke Stop (where users collect resources needed to catch Pokémon, or gyms, where competitions are held among the Pokémon, causing players to be drawn to these locations - Churches and other landmarks in the neighborhood).

My son was going to the church to play the game.

For now, I hope that by just drawing close to the church, my son (and others) will become inspired (at some point) and walk inside the church...and "just be" in the presence of the sacred (God)...There are all kinds of very creative things that we could see happening in the near future. As these things move forward, who knows where technology is going to take us?

5 reasons why family traditions are important

 

1. Family traditions create good feelings and special moments to remember. Enjoying this time together as a family will create positive emotions in each member and these are the memories that will last a lifetime.

2. Family traditions give every member of the family a strong sense of belonging. Being a part of a family is more than living in the same home or having the same last name; it is about relationships and family bonds. Since family traditions are something you do together, they strengthen the bonds you have between each other.

3. Family traditions help with his/her identity. It helps to know that you ‘belong’ when you are trying to figure out who you are, which is a main job of the adolescent. A family that encourages a teen to be a part of it and its traditions provides a strong foundation for teens to stand on when they’re searching and defining their sense of self.

4. Family traditions help impart the family’s values to their children. Showing your teen what having the ability to love is about happens naturally when you spend quality time together – like during a traditional family activity. You will also find more opportunities to talk to your teen about serious issues as well as keep the conversations light when you observe a family tradition.

5. Family traditions offer your teen a sense a security. Every day your teen faces some very difficult issues. Knowing that she is secure and has a family to turn to is a powerful tool to use against negative peer pressure.

A strong family has a commitment to one another and keeps increasing in strength because of the time we spend together participating in family traditions.
