Today's guest post comes from my friend Adam Navis. Adam is the Director of Operations for Words of Hope and is also studying the intersection of faith and writing for the focus of his D.Min. studies at Western Theological Seminary.
It’s Monday, the day after Germany defeated Argentina in the World Cup Finals. I've watched more games during the 2014 World Cup than ever before (4). I was a few years ahead of the youth-soccer boom in America, but I’ve got enough younger (and international) relatives that getting together to watch the World Cup is now a thing that happens in my life.
But to watch a World Cup game, I have to go to my in-laws house because we don't have broadcast television. For five years now, our family has gotten all our television through Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and iTunes. We did this to save money, but it has also meant that our three children have grown up being able to control what they watch, when they watch it, and more significantly - they don't watch commercials!
