And on June 19, professor, journalist and author of the nationally syndicated “On Religion” column Terry Mattingly will present his thoughts and reflections on how screen culture contributes to rising statistics for loneliness, anxiety, gender confusion, and other issues, as well as how church leaders made use of screen technology during the pandemic.
Terry’s presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q and A hosted by Fr. Chad Hatfield, President of St. Vladimir’s Seminary, and Dr. John Mark Reynolds, President of the St. Constantine School and Orthodox Christian Leadership Initiative.
