‘Dr Lewis said the Church can model healthy and diverse communities, as they give us the opportunity to connect with people from all different perspectives and backgrounds, which we can then apply to our online conversations.
“I think one of the things that can happen with social media is you end up connecting with only the people who think like you and you have to make a real effort to do that differently. So actually, if you’re in a church with a wide range of ages, people who think differently politically, it can model a different way of doing this and having healthy debate.”‘
