Theology of communication not articulated clearly, but comes out in attitude/actions.

Great exercises

Towards a Theology of Communication

God Communicates in Word & Deed

God communicates in self giving love

Shannon & Weaver – how communication happens. Sender/receiver model Message, thought about – how does message go from sender to receiver? What channel, what noise is in the channel? Feedback is going on. Have to code the message & decode it. Communication as a power relationship from sender to receiver.

Quentin Schultze – “co-producers of culture”.

God gives us the gift of communication and we’re not just passive receivers.

  1. I am extremely privileged to have met some talented geeks working for God.

    The internet is so vast and uncontrolled and can be a spiritual warfare battleground.

    The responsibility of all Christians is to use it with wisdom and discretion. That can only happen when we submit to God.

    I call one of the original internet coders my friend. It grieves him to watch it being used negatively, but celebrates the fact that he has opened up a medium that can liberate knowledge and access freedom of ideas.

    There are moves to control and tie down the net. Eg. China, Pakistan, and even more threatening the control of domains by those whom place mammon before freedom, under the shroud of protection and control. Remember the God that liberates and offers us freedom of choice is?

    We are at the threshold of the internet only just becoming truly world wide. It preferences those with the luxury to access it, and it is going to explode with gadgets such as the iPads and other mobile devices within financial range.

    Any Christian is going to have to wake up and keep up.
    Churches who do not access this are in dinosaur territory…. ie extinction.

    Even Cathedrals are embracing with Sue Wallace/visions, and Ripon Cathedral’s Pentecost Praise using virtual 3D images from Scripted Scriptures.

    Pray hard, and listen to that small voice that instructs.

    God Bless
