Get Connected

Christian Unity in the Digital Age

Our neighbors at the Massachusetts Council of Churches are having a conference to coincide with their annual meeting next weekend.

[]The last few years have brought about radical changes in the way society communicates. Increasing numbers of Americans connect via Twitter, Facebook, blogs as well as a host of emerging social media platforms. The Church is faced with a fascinating dilemma: how might these tools be engaged to build the Kingdom of God and heal the divisions in the Body of Christ?

Panelists Rev. Keith Anderson, Domenico Bettinelli, Jr., and Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein will explore the theological issues raised through new media. In the second part, attendees will learn more about the practical application of these tools for ministry from a diverse array of lay and ordained practitioners. As we join together in worship, we will install Rev. Laura Everett as the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches.

8:30 am — 2:00 pm
