Many Christian congregations now offer hybrid worship services: you can worship in person or online. While these options have become extensive, our understanding of them has not kept pace. Furthermore, emerging technologies like artificial intelligence will only further complicate matters. The contemporary church needs a way to make sense of the dizzying influx of emerging technologies, practices, and possibilities. This lecture will offer a digital ecclesiology framework for addressing questions about the church in a digital age.
