This is a presentation originally published by the Evangelical Alliance on how we understand the culture of the online world – just as in the same way we might seek to understand a country’s culture before going on mission there.
This talk was filmed at a national consultation, entitled, ‘A Relevant Gospel: How should we contextualise the message for our 21st century Britain?’. It is the second in a series of five events taking place as part of the Evangelical Alliance’s ‘Confidence in the Gospel’ initiative.
View the powerpoint:
- What are the best and worst examples of Christians (individuals, churches, organisations) engaging in the digital space that we have experienced?
- What personal experiences do we have of sharing our faith online?
- What challenges or ideas did we pick up from the talk – both for our own online engagement, and for our church’s?
- Bex Lewis finished by asking three questions. How would we respond to each of them?:
- What biblical values do we want to see in our digital world?
- What do the fruits of the Spirit look like online?
- What does it mean to share with grace?
- What personal experiences do we have of sharing our faith online? Do we find it easier or more difficult to share our faith online?
- Is there a disconnect between our online and offline lives? Is this a problem? How can we ensure that we, and those we are responsible for, are well-equipped to engage well in the digital space?
