In March SpokaneFAVS held a Coffee Talk discussion on Faith & Technology. Below are related posts.
Social Media “hired gun”, Mike Ellis, will be the guest panelist for Saturday’s Coffee Talk on faith and technology.

Perhaps you’ve seen the memes.
“Churches and technology: The good, the bad and the ugly”
Before I delve into the topic for the upcoming Coffee Talk, let me point out that I am far from the first, the last or the most qualified person to discuss this subject.
