Faith + Humanities (Sara Hendren – “When Our Bodies Meet Technology”)

January 27 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

What does it mean to follow Jesus into all of our life?

“Faith &” Gatherings

Thursday Nights from 6:30 – 8:00pm (Next on January 27th)  | Hearth Room (YouTube and Zoom Available)

YouTube Page | Zoom Room

Does following Jesus touch all of our life? Join us in our ongoing journey to find out as we gather monthly to hear facilitators exploring topics that intersect faith with weighty subjects like justice, humanities, environmental stewardship, and everything in-between.

“When Our Bodies Meet Technology”

Everyone uses prosthetics of some kind. Maybe we use the formal kind—reading glasses or orthotic shoes, crutches or wheelchairs or hearing aids. Or perhaps we employ household tools that extend our bodies in modest ways: smartphones, kitchen utensils, tweezers and screwdrivers, and ballpoint pens. Behind all this adaptation lies deeper wisdom about bodies broken and whole. Join us for an exploration of how we use technology to extend the capacity for bodies of all abilities, and how it reveals our shared condition of giving and receiving help.
