God on the web

Are you a Digital Native — born and raised on technology; or do you feel more like a Digital Immigrant — slightly awkward with the culture and the language? Does the internet help you make relationships and spread the word; or does it reduce your ability to think and rest properly?

I spent some time recently reading and talking with theologians who study “digital theology”. Here’s a light‐hearted taste of what difference the internet can make to your faith.
