New Arrivals

Always on: practicing faith in a new media landscape by Angela Williams Gorrell

Many of us are 'always on'--scrolling through social media, checking email, or searching the web. New media spaces can be sites and instruments of God's unconditional love, but they can also nurture harmful conditions and become a source of anxiety, jealousy, and despondency. Always On provides useful tools for helping students and congregants understand the world of social media and engage it faithfully, enabling Christian communities to address its use in constructive, pastoral ways.
The book includes discussion questions and sample exercises for each chapter.
