Religious communities sometimes have a fraught relationship with technology in general and the internet, smartphones, and “screens” in particular. On the one hand, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, etc see the power these technologies have to build, grow, and maintain contact with the community and “spread the word”. On the other, technology is often perceived as a cesspool of evil inclinations and a scourge that is destroying families and minds. As IT professionals within our religious communities, we’re often asked to address, and even “fix”, those issues. Last week, Josh Biggley, Keith Townsend, and Leon Adato discussed what was good about being “geeks in the pew”. In next week’s installment, we’ll explore the challenging side of this situation and look at some solutions.
