Ministry in the Digital Age

If you’ve read just about anything I’ve written over the last few years, you will know that I’m keenly interested in how the church responds to the challenges and opportunities presented by living in the digital age. What do I mean by “digital age”? Well, various authors and thinkers define it in slightly different ways, but suffice it to say that it’s a world where we receive and increasingly share most of our information – which of course includes our thoughts and beliefs about meaning and identity – via digital platforms.

All of which is why I’m so excited to invite you to hear a lecture next Tuesday by Pastor Keith Anderson, pastor of Upper Dublin Lutheran Church in Ambler (PA), co-author of Click 2 Save: The Digital Ministry Bible, and author of the forth-coming The Digital Cathedral: Networked Ministry in a Wireless World. Keith is an expert in these matters, is an engaging presenter, and has put what he will share with us into practice in the congregations he has served.

The lecture will be in the Brossman Center on the LTSP campus next Tuesday, March 3, from 11:30-12:30. If you’re near Philly, come on by. But if you’re not able to join us on campus, you can also catch the streamed lecture or its digital archive by going to the LTSP website. You can also enjoy more of Keith’s writing at his blog.
