Event description

Description

Smart phones, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, robot assistants, gene-splicing technology, reusable rockets, regenerative medicine... The world is changing fast, and the world of technology faster still.

While there is a tendency to equate technology with all that is ‘hi-tech’, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Technology permeates every moment of our existence. It’s not so much a part of life we opt in and out of, but more the cultural environment in which we live, where old and familiar questions are being asked: who are we? How do we make sense of life? Where is the world heading?

Technology has amazing potential for good. Very few of us want to go back to sun dials, carrier pigeons, or operations without anaesthetic. And yet, we’re all too aware of its negative impacts – on us and those around us. Technology tells a story about what the ‘good life’ looks like. But how does that align with God’s design for our lives?

How do we navigate the world of technology – in a way that honours God, serves others, and contributes to the overall flourishing of wider society?

Together with Kingdom Code, LICC is beginning a series of events on technology by putting in place a biblical framework which helps us to understand its promises and pitfalls, to reflect on how we can we steward technology well without allowing it to master us.

Join us for an evening with software developer Andy Geers, for an opportunity to explore how we can understand and engage with technology from the perspective of an outlook shaped by Scripture. With a time for Q&A, as well as interviews with Christians working in technology, we’ll consider the broader issue of how following Jesus relates to this significant part of everyday life.

Speaker bio: Andy Geers works full time developing the PrayerMate app, having previously worked for a major newspaper and a movie visual effects company. Alongside being a husband and father, he is involved at Euston Church, a church plant based in the heart of student land in central London.

Kingdom Code brings together a community of Christians working with technology (professional and amateur), to encourage and equip them to see how their skillset can serve Christ and advance his kingdom.
