Thursday, September 20 | 12:00 PM | Commons Room
Join us for the next Senior Fellowship Luncheon when we welcome parishioner, Richard Thieme who will speak about “TechnoCulture Shock – Why it Never Stops, How it Impacts Religion and What We Can Do about it.”
Richard is an author and professional speaker who addresses challenges posed by new technologies. His speaking addresses “the human in the machine,” technology-related security and intelligence issues as they come home to our humanity. Thieme’s passion for integrating technology and spirituality began in the eighties when he wrote “Computer Applications for Spirituality: The Transformation of Religious Experience,” an essay published by the Anglican Theological Review.
He joined Bill Moyers and noted religious scholars in New York to explore religion and technology in the twenty-first century; a book based on that conference includes his 10,000- word essay “Entering Sacred Digital Space.” Richard and his wife, Shirley, live in Edina and joined St. Stephen’s a little over one year ago.
Our menu for the luncheon will include hot chicken salad, relish tray, assorted rolls (including gluten-free) and an apple dessert a la mode.
