TMPS 7142 Spirituality, New Media, and the Religiously Unaffiliated (Summer: 1 )

Course Description

What would Jesus tweet, post on Facebook, or pin on Pinterest? Digital social media have had a rapid and profound impact on practices of everyday living, including religion and spirituality. This course explores the influence of increasingly digitally-integrated life practices on the religious and spiritual lives of ordinary people. We will pay particular attention to how new media practices may shape the spiritualities of the growing population of "Nones" - people who answer "none" when asked what religion they are affiliated. We will explore theologically-grounded digitally-integrated ministry approaches that enrich connections within and beyond church and other religious communities.
