Faith in the Church of Facebook


clockOur friend Dr Matthew Tan has been globetrotting, speaking at various conferences and gatherings along the way. At the Theology and Communications Conference 2014 at the University of Santa Clara, California, Dr Matthew Tan presents this paper entitled Faith in the Church of Facebook: the Riddle of Space and Time.

In this presentation, Dr Matthew Tan speaks about how faith is about dispositions and interactions rather than an simply assent to ideas, how Facebook promotes a “clock” view of time which can be problematic in our relationship with faith and God’s Providence, and how the Church must continue to counter “clock-time” with God’s time – as found in the Liturgy.
