Christianity in the Digital Space Symposium under way now

digitalsymp3You all are warmly encouraged to follow the symposium Christianity in the Digital Space – it’s available in streaming format and its blog site is at http://digitalsymp.blogspot.com/. Videos of past meetings are available on their youtube channel.

The Rev. Mark Brown is speaking at this moment; N.T. Wright will also be speaking, and Ailsa Wright (Helene Milena at the Cathedral and in our Bible study) has already given a short presentation.

  • explore the interrelationship between Christianity and the media, spirituality and the internet
