The Wonder and Fear of Technology

Redeemer’s Center for Faith & Work will hold its 6th annual Faith & Work Conference November 11-12, 2016 on The Wonder and Fear of Technology.

 

Technology, both theoretically and practically, has staked its claim in our cultural moment. It is here to stay. This dominance has fostered much positive innovation, yet also exposed a great deal of fear and anxiety about our future, prodding the theological realm for greater nuance and application. Is technology inherently at odds with tradition? Join us as we examine the future of work and develop new thought on the intersection of faith and technology.

Tim Keller will launch the program on Friday evening, and a host of other distinguished presenters will follow, including Derek Thompson (Senior Editor at The Atlantic and author of A World Without Work), Alissa Wilkinson (Writer at Vox and Christianity Today), Peter Thiel (Co-founder of Paypal), Nigel Cameron (President and CEO, Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies) and others. Performances will be given by Adam Wade (Girls, Inside Amy Schumer) and The Brilliance.

CFW will also hold a Pre-Conference Intensive on November 11 for those interested in further exploring the holistic approach to faith and work integration. CFW Executive Director David H. Kim will provide training and instruction with a behind-the-scenes look at the theological foundations and organizational structures necessary for faith and work.
