Faithfully Navigating the Digital Age: Technology,Theology and Spiritual Formation

In this episode of the Lausanne Movement Podcast, we dive deep into the intersection of theology, culture, and technology with Jonas Kurlberg and Dr. Matthew Niermann. We explore the major shifts unfolding in the digital space and the profound opportunities and challenges technology presents in shaping our lives, faith, and understanding of God. We unpack how technological advancements shape human formation, community growth, and decision-making processes. More importantly, Jonas challenges us to shift our perspective, seeing the digital landscape not as a threat, but as a significant aspect of our context in which we live out our faith.

If you are a Christian who seeks to embody Christ and help others live faithfully in this digital age, then this podcast episode is for you.
