This is the second in a new series of interviews on the WeeklyTech Podcast, where a couple times a month we will highlight an interview with leading cultural and thought leaders about the role technology plays in our society.
This week Jay Kim, a pastor at Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, California, joins me to talk about his new book, Analog Church. We discuss how his book speaks to this cultural moment, the importance of utilizing technology as tools rather than allowing it to utilize us, as well as our need for community in this digital age. We dive into what it means to be embodied creatures and discuss how to find a balance in our responses to technology in order to utilize technology well.
Check out Jay’s new book Analog Church: Why We Need Real People, Places, and Things in the Digital Age.
