Media and communications play a huge role in controlling and influencing our daily lives. The lives of many families are influenced and to a greater extend controlled today by internet, television, magazines and various social media platforms. The tendency to ignore the Christian magazines which can help us in our spiritual growth lure us more towards the materialistic pleasure the world has to offer. The self-realization that this kind of living is harmful is slowly creeping upon people. It is time to act quickly when faced with such situations and use these social media platforms to spread the good news. RRC has stepped up to leverage the various social media platforms to spread the good news through its RRC media Ministries wing.
