Programme ECIC 22
Internet as Public Space
Extended Reality and Public Theology
Churches have always emerged in public places. Now, the digital world extends and pervades our world: Pokemon Go game, augmented reality apps, 3D games and instant messaging.
What are the possibilities for the church? How can we "extend" the world to bring our message to the people?
Christian voices have to make a contribution that is relevant and consistent with the Bible message in style and in content.
How does the lack of physical presence affect our empathy and our discourse…?
How could public theology and extended reality help us to give positive nudges to the more and more polarized world?
