On Sunday, October 7, the Reverend Dr. Andrew Zirschky will preach at the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Liturgies on the topic "Where Technology and Faith Collide."
An intergenerational panel discussion during the Dean's Forum at 9:45 a.m. will be moderated by the Reverend Matthew Lewis. Panelists will field questions on a variety of themes relating to faith and technology in order to offer reflections on the subject from their perspectives across different generations.
The Reverend Dr. Zirschky will continue the discussion over refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. that afternoon. Children, youth, and adults alike are invited to participate in a full day of insightful and challenging conversations about faith in the digital age.
The discussion will examine how social and mobile media are changing the ways we relate in fundamental ways. What is the call of the Christian community in a digital society and how do we live at the intersection where technology and our faith collide?
