AT 393 Spiritual Companionship & Digital Media Practicum

from 600.00

What does it mean to be present to each other as spiritual companions?  How can the telephone, the web, social media, email, and Skype be used for spiritual encounter and community?  What advantages do these media offer us in developing spiritual community and how are they inadequate?  

This course will explore the use of digital media in spiritual community and practice. We will explore how we are present to each other through spiritual practices such as lectio divina, centering prayer, group spiritual direction, intercessory prayer, pastoral care, and worship in traditional formats, and experience such practices via digital means. We will examine how digital media enable us to create community in new and creative ways for the populations in our specific ministries.
