Should religious change be driven by technology?

Is culture, driven to change at a breakneck speed by revolutions in technology and communications, moving so quickly that faith and religion are about to drop out of sight? Can (should?) religion in America change quickly enough to keep that from happening if it’s a real threat?

You remember a little … I’ll add a piece

My children are too young – they hadn’t yet come into the world – but one day they’ll ask about it: not just the facts, but the mood, the tenor. I have no problem talking about drugs, sex, any of the the many things you hear parents dreading. And I don’t really even dread this. But it will be singularly humbling to have to be the one who will explain just how dark men’s hearts can be.

Quiet to mark the moment

“Our pain is God’s pain and that means that in due time it will become life-giving and healing in the very measure of its intensity.”
