I’m really excited to see so many cool offerings here! All of them are a helpful reminder that a better awareness of “religion” isn’t just for believers or those who work in higher-ed or journalism. Faith informs so many parts of people’s real life — past and present — and, increasingly today, that means online. Obviously, there’s going to lot to talk about here, including the common bias that religious people should just “evolve” (the equivalent of installing a software “update”!) to meet the standards of the modern world. I can’t wait to see how people respond to these conversations. Can’t wait to meet up.
