Radiate Workshop--Evangelization, Social Media & Virtue: Restlessness in a Mediated Culture

RADIATE WORKSHOP w/ SR. NANCY USSELMANN, F.S.P.

Evangelization, Social Media, & Virtue : Restlessness in a Mediated Culture

Saturday, Oct. 13th, 9AM - 12PM in the Parish Hall, St. Dominic's Church, SF

Cost: $25--Pay Online Here.  We encourage you to bring your social media device.  

Social media's use for information and self-expression can sometimes become an outlet for angry rants, misinformation and indiscretion. Media mindfulness is built on the foundation of critical inquiry, bringing one's values into conversation with the media messages. But what do we really value? Are those values congruent with the virtues? Virtues are habits of being that promote respect as the core of a happy life. How can we live the good life within a digital culture?

WORKSHOP PRESENTER: Sr. Nancy is the Director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies and a Media Literacy Education Specialist.   She has degrees in Communications Arts and a Masters in Theology and the Arts from Fuller Theological Seminary.
