We live in a world of constant distraction. Not only are we constantly being interrupted by cellphones, email, and text messages, but we're also distracted from thinking and contemplation in a culture of constant entertainment. Joining the panel to discuss this topic is media ecologist, T. David Gordon, author of Why Johnny Can't Preach: The Media Have Shaped The Messengers, and more recently, Why Johnny Can't Sing Hymns: How Pop Culture Rewrote the Hymnal.
