Disciples pastors, lay leaders and theologians who want to better understand new ways of communication will likely want to participate in a two and a half-day conference hosted by Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, Calif. Entitled "Theology After Google," the conference will take place at Claremont March 10-12. Theologians with expertise in the use of traditional media, such as sermons, books, and academic articles will join with those who use new media, including blogging, podcasts and YouTube posts, to present the sessions.
The conference is designed to encourage theologians and church leaders to think about ways to use emerging media to reach today’s church and society. One goal will be to teach conference participants how to enhance traditional ways of communicating by the church through books, academic articles, sermons, with emergent new media technologies.
