Technology and Tradition
Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
“The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
I’ve always been skeptical about this statement. Is that really true? Does change just bring us back to the place we started from?
This week, as we take up May’s theme of “Tradition,” I’ll be looking at the ways technology has changed and challenged tradition—both in our wider culture, and in the context of religious communities. What effect is screen-time having in our lives? In what ways do the tools of technology allow us to do things as a congregation our predecessors could have never imagined? And where is all of this going?
See you on Sunday.
In faith and love,
