"Part of my own journey is wanting to become a different kind of person who can be present to the people in my life." — Felicia Song
How do digital devices affect our journeys of spiritual formation — and what can we do about that? Join us for this conversation with writer and professor Felicia Wu Song as we discuss digital habits and the grace of establishing soul-shaping practices.
Let me invite you into a conversation with professor and cultural sociologist Felicia Wu Song, in which we talk about her recent book Restless Devices: Recovering Personhood, Presence, and Place in the Digital Age. Reading this book felt like a real spiritual journey for me with Felicia serving as a gentle guide . She describes the challenges that come with our compulsive use of digital devices, and then leads the reader into spiritual practices that help temper some of the harmful effects and reorient our focus back to connectedness with God and one another. It’s a beautiful and courageous and kind book, especially around a topic that could be filled with shoulds and oughts — and Felicia and I talk about why she decided NOT to offer a lot of hard and fast rules about managing digital devices. I loved talking with Felicia and I think you’ll enjoy our conversation too. So have a listen! We're so glad you're here.
