A Blessing and a Curse: The Power of the Internet on Our Religious Lives

The Internet has changed the way ideas are communicated and people are mobilized, and therefore has immense implications for the personal and communal practice of religion. Paul Raushenbush, senior religion editor for the Huffington Post, discussed the power of the web as it relates to community, authority, and tradition, as well as its potential destructive and constructive power. He also offered best practice tips for those who wish to be more effective with blogging and social media.
