This is a great article. It’s interesting to see the development of religion alongside technology. On some levels, one would think that technology and spirituality would be increasingly divergent realms. But it’s encouraging to see people working to use them together, instead of skying away from one or the other.
In one of my religion classes last semester, my professor asked us what we thought the future of religion in America would be. We talked about Buddhist/Christian/Jewish churches and “salad-bar religion” and all sorts of mix-and-match combinations of spirituality. But we also talked about how technology might be used in religions in the future.
It’s not going away. And so, instead of seeing technology as something incompatible with the religious, I’m glad to see people melding the two like this.
