Digital church: Theology and new media

Feb 08, 2013 | New Media Project


Union Theological Seminary

3041 Broadway at 121st Street

New York, NY, USA

For two years, the New Media Project has engaged in research and reflection about how changing patterns and tools of digital communication affect religious leaders and communities of faith. Our hope has been to model and spark theological thinking about new media through blog posts, case studies, and theological essays. This one-day event showcases the work of the New Media Project and invites participants into the ongoing conversation.
