iFaith?: The Church in the Digital Age
April 29, 2013
The upcoming sympoisum is titled "iFaith?: The Church in the Digital Age" and will be held at Truett Seminary Chapel. It will begin at 9am with Dr. Quentin Schultze, Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair, DeVos Communication Center, Calvin College and followed by a panel of respondents.
With the ever-growing use of communication technology in our culture, it is perhaps inevitable that the church will be increasingly influenced by this fact, in how it worships, communicates with itself and the world, reaches into its various communities, and in broad terms how it sustains its identity as the Body of Christ. A critical question is the growing tension between the traditional face-to face communication and interaction within the church and the now almost universal mediating presence of technology, e.g., in the reading of the biblical text, in the singing of hymns, and in preaching.
