Today people are more “connected” than ever thanks to smartphones, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. Yet American’s are statistically some of the loneliest people on Earth! In this talk Peter Bowden, an expert
on community building and digital life, will share how we can bridge our online and offline communities, better
welcome people into the heart of our congregation, and bring our values more fully into the world.
