INTEGRATING FAITH & TECHNOLOGY
A focused six-week program designed to present a path for an integrated lens with which to understand the development of new and better technology as a fundamentally “faithful” act and an expression of a spiritual hope for creation. The program will facilitate the exploration of the fundamental definitions of faith and technology, present a detailed view on their shared historical context, provide a number of alternative frameworks for discussion, and offer a more accurate view of the divine call to be co-creators in the world.
The group conversation is designed for individuals who seek to develop a deeper contextual narrative and demonstrate practical frameworks for understanding the interdependent relationship between faith and technology. Course notes, recommended reading lists, reflection questions and supplemental readings will be provided.
