Faith+Culture: Media Wisdom
Our culture is incredibly fragmented and nobody likes it. We often find ourselves in echo chambers with people who agree with us, but it seems nearly impossible to overcome the current cultural divisions. On October 24, 2017 people gathered for a great conversation, led by Christie Thurstone, on the role that the media plays in this divisiveness. 50 years ago, there were considerably less options for media consumption, but in today's world we are able to consume media that suits our own sensibilities and ideologies. What does it mean for Christians to wisely consume media and faithfully follow Jesus, becoming truly more informed in our opinions and less tribal? Christie is Denver Pres member and nationally recognized journalism professional (former president of the American Society of Professional Journalists, and writer for Chicago Tribune and Denver Post). She now owns her own media company and thinks critically about these issues every day.
