CE-Net: Digital Formation Part 2 

On October 5 from 10 to 11:30 a.m., CE-NET will continue our exploration of digital faith formation that began early in June with a more hands on approach to the topic. CE-NET has partnered with Jared Rendell, Partner for Digital Strategies, at Vibrant Faith to take us one step further in exploring this topic. Utilizing a recent news event and one social media platform, Jared will demonstrate how social media might be used from a faith perspective, to engage individuals.

This session will be offered via Zoom so there is no need to fight traffic or tunnel congestion to be part of the experience.

Given the news headlines, we are finding that our communities are searching for ways to make sense of and respond to the community and world events with a faith lens. Unfortunately, the time needed to plan bricks and mortar programs often means that a window of opportunity to engage people has passed. Digital media produces an instant platform to connect faith to what is happening in the world.

Participants will need to download the Zoom application in advance of this session in order to participate. If you haven’t used Zoom before on your computer/tablet/phone you can find any downloads here: https://zoom.us/download (either app or plugin for computer). 

We hope you can join us for this session.
