Spreading the Word with new media

October 7, 2011
Do we need modern media to proclaim the Good News? We have a duty to evangelize, but is there a wrong way to evangelize? Can modern media, such as Youtube and Facebook, effectively communicate the depth of revelation? Can a tweet bring you one step closer to an encounter with Jesus, the icon of the Living God?
To answer this, we speak with Father Robert Barron of Word on Fire Ministries, creator and host of the 10-part documentary series Catholicism, as well as Nicole Myshak of the JP II Media Institute, who produced Dogmatic Theology. They share their perspective on the role of new media -- both the opportunities and the inherent challenges. We will also learn how their ministries use new media to invite people to rediscover the Faith.
Join us as we discuss the role of media in the new evangelization. Perspectives: The Weekly Edition airs Friday, October 7th at 7 and 11pm ET (8pm PT). In the meantime, share your perspective on the S+L Facebook page.
