Are you curious about how other Christians are using their screens and keyboards for the good of the world? If so, you may be interested in this Oct. 30 webinar about Icelandic churches’ use of social media. It’s organized by the World Association for Christian Communication, North America region. (Full disclosure: I serve on this board.) I’ve heard Árni Svanur speak before and appreciated his intelligence, humour, and fascinating insights about doing church in Iceland.
I’ve pasted the promo information below, along with a link where you can register.
Fragmented, But Wholesome: Iceland’s Church and Society Dialogues Via Social Media
Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 from 11am to noon Eastern time.
In this webinar the Rev. Árni Svanur Daníelsson, Director of Communications for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Iceland (ELCI), will share two case studies of how social media has been utilized in a discourse about church and religion in Iceland. First a discussion on church and school 2010 and then a discussion about the church and the Icelandic constitution in connection with a referendum on the constitution that will take place in late October 2012. From this Daníelsson will draw conclusions regarding the nature of the religious discourse and present some findings on how the church can utilize social media in its work.
Árni Svanur Daníelsson is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Iceland. He currently serves as the Director of Communication for the ELCI. He has worked with church communication since 2001 and is a specialist in the use of the web and social media for church communication.
