Identity and the digital age topic of lectureMOORHEAD – Concordia College will present the Oen Fellowship Lecture featuring Dr. Andrew Root at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Centrum, Knutson Campus Center.
Root will discuss “Identity Construction, Young People and the Church.” He will talk about identity in the digital age and the relationship of the church to identity. He says that all our technological transformation does more to us than give us new things to buy, but in using it, it actually changes us. It has a way of impacting our very identity, or at least the ways we construct an identity, he says.
Root is an associate professor of youth and ministry at Luther Seminary, and he is the author of “The Promise of Despair.”
The lecture is free and open to the public.
