Wired Faith for the Real World

What does it mean to equip seminarians to proclaim the Gospel to the world? At Abilene Christian University it includes putting the world at students’ fingertips through a commitment to Internet connectivity of students, teachers, coursework, course books and resources, the wider community and the World Wide Web. ACU recognizes that its students have grown up in a wireless world and are deeply enmeshed in it; a good education, then, requires helping students learn to distinguish what is most useful on the web and how to use technology to promote and deepen human interaction. An article written by Fiona Soltes for Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, explores the way ACU has embraced the wired world, its continuous pursuit of effective ways to use connectivity and its exploration of when to promote disconnecting. Accompanying reflection questions are helpful for individuals and groups.
