Congregational Book Read & Conversation

Back to all Events

  • Every Monday until January 25, 2021
  • Time: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
  • Coordinator: RCCPC Office
 

Our next congregational book read and conversation will be on the book: "Always On". 

Join Pastor Randy on Monday January 18th and 25th, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, as he facilitates a two-evening conversation about the intersection of faith and the world of social media, email and websites.  Using the book “Always On” by Angela Williams Gorrell, as the basis of our conversation, we will explore how technology and social media impact identity and community formation.   Reading the book will be helpful but not required.  We will ask, however, that you register ahead of time if you wish to participate.

Dr. Williams T is an assistant professor of practical theology at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University.  The book’s publisher says:

Many of us are "always on"--scrolling through social media, checking email, or searching the web. New media spaces can be sites and instruments of God's unconditional love, but they can also nurture harmful conditions and become sources of anxiety, jealousy, and despondency. How can we discern, articulate, and embody ways new media (including social media) can nurture healing Christian community?

Always On provides useful tools for helping students and congregants understand the world of social media and engage it faithfully. It traces the impact of social media on the Christian life and enables Christian communities to address its use in constructive, pastoral ways. The book examines how new media use shapes a person's theology and how it can communicate and embody visions of the good life
