Event description
Through a combination of pre-recorded and live sessions we will explore how to be disciples in an age of technology.

About this event

THE QUESTIONS THAT GATHER US

  • What are the nuanced ways we ought to engage the vast signifier “technology”?
  • In our capacities as homo faber, how does technology contribute to human flourishing?
  • As an aspect of the fallen order, how does technology work against creaturely thriving?
  • How should we think about technology within the Church’s long tradition of mediation?

Through plenaries, film discussions, lectio divina, guided conversations, scriptural reflections, and social gatherings we will ponder these questions that gather us.

Pre-recorded and live sessions from mid-June to mid-July. All listed times are Eastern Time(ET).

EVENT SCHEDULE

Mid-June. Pre-recorded plenary talks available for viewing. Watch at your own convenience. Be prepared to discuss them during the pre-Gathering conversations.

REGISTRATION FEES

In order to facilitate our gathering this year, we are asking that participants pay a registration fee of $30. This will not only serve the purpose of covering the gathering costs, but will also help us to have an accurate count of how many people are participating. This can be particularly challenging but also particularly important when meeting online, so please make every effort to go through the registration process. To that end, please register by Thursday, June 17.

We don’t want this fee to be cost-prohibitive for anyone. If you want to be a part of the Gathering, but are unable to pay all or part of the $30, please contact Jaimee Ryan(epfacilitator@gmail.com) and she will work with you to help you register.

Additionally, if any participants would like to provide something extra, in order to help others participate, please use the Donation button during the registration process.
