Reconsidering Technology: How Technology Shapes Our Souls
Technology has changed - and is changing - the world we live in at an incredible pace. Some of the changes are for the better. Other changes - not so much. This talk explores how the ever changing world of technology impacts our souls and what we can do about it.
Nathan Towery received a Master of Divinity from Biola University and a Master of Mathematics at Virginia Tech. He currently works at Netflix as the Director of Product Data Engineering & Analytics. All this makes him a great person to speak to us about the intersection of technology and our Christian faith!
This is a lecture in our lecture series called Think Again: Reconsidering Life, God, and Other Small Topics. Stay after the service for lunch, a lecture tackling a relevant topic, and some open forum discussion.
