Adult Forum (Westbrook Building) - The Sacrament of New Media: Towards an Integrated Presence
Sponsor(s): Congregation at Duke University Chapel and Duke Chapel
How is the use of new media is not only necessary, but sacramental - life-giving, life-transforming, life-affirming - for the individual and the faith community? This will be a time to look a little at "new media" practices, a little recent history around the intersections with religion and religious experience, and what it means for the church to be "present" in an age of digital technologies.
With a variety of guest speakers, the Adult Forum offers presentations and discussions on a wide range of topics. The thought-provoking topics include Biblical studies, current social issues, and the work of mission agencies. All presentations are open to the public.
