Digital Liturgies: Rediscovering Christian Wisdom in an Online Age
Samuel D. James

With advancements in internet technology, people can get instant answers to just about any of their questions, connect long distance with family and friends, and stay informed with events around the world in real time. Many positives come with technology!

But these man-made structures that can be gifts can also become golden calves that reshape our worship, promise more than can be delivered, and leave us with the depressing exhaustion of self-creation.

Join us for the mini-class, “Digital Liturgies,” as author and tech-realist Samuel James walks us through the five digital liturgies that prohibit people from contemplating big truths, accepting the uncomfortable, and acknowledging God as their Creator.

We will learn how to navigate our internet-saturated world, rest in God’s perfect design, and see the connection between the trend of deconstruction and the habitat of internet technology.

This is a great seminar for high school and college students, parents and ministry leaders. Great food, Q&A, notes provided.

“This accessible but penetrating book shows how our late-modern, secular culture provides liturgies: soul-shaping practices and narratives that train us to turn from God to the sovereign self, from God-created nature to self-created reality, from living for truth and love to living for power …. Samuel James has written an essential book. He is one of the small but growing number of young thinkers to whom the church must listen if it is to learn how to be effective in evangelism and formation in a post-Christendom world.”
