We do recommend the use of these insightful and practical resources in families, churches, schools and other educational institutions. For further media awareness resources, please consult CultureWatch – a key resource from Damaris UK.

If these reources are helpful for you, or if you know of other relevant media awareness resources, join the conversation.


Several Christian leaders have been asked to continue the conversation by responding to this lead article.
