Digital Liturgies: A Conversation with Samuel D. James

The question “Am I being formed?” is never a valid one for the Christian. Rather, we must continually ask ourselves “By what am I being formed and how?” In his book Digital Liturgies: Rediscovering Christian Wisdom in an Online Age, Samuel D. James claims “Rather than being a neutral tool, the internet (particularly the social internet) is an epistemological environment—a spiritual and intellectual habitat—that creates in its members particular ways of thinking, feeling, and believing.” James believes Christians have been largely unaware of the formative powers of regular life online. In this episode, he and Dr. Keith Plummer talk about why it’s important for followers of Jesus to realize how the habits and practices of the digital world obscure wisdom (which James defines as conformity to the objective reality of God’s creation) and how we can resist.
