This episode features a presentation from our 2019 conference on technology, given by CPT Fellow Dan Brendsel. Dan joins Zach Wagner to reflect on his talk in a now post-Covid world. Technology is like a road, a tool that is formed with pre-determined purpose and utility that separates us from something naturally vital to reality. A path on the other hand is different. A path is a way of moving through the world that does not view the environment around it as something to be used and torn through. The church is to be a path, a distinct culture that orients itself around creation rather than technology. The technology of the church, its liturgy, should not resist its context but cultivate its sense of place. How does the liturgical "technology" of bread and wine inform the way we as Christians view technology in general?
