The Use Of Reality Television And Social Media By Mormon Fundamentalist Groups. Changing Representations, Minds, And Laws., Mathilde Vanasse-Pelletier

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

This presentation will describe the interactions between religious fundamentalisms, in this case in the form of polygamous Mormon culture, and information technology. We will also discuss the way that the various information transmission strategies used by advocates of plural marriage can lead to effective changes in laws and public policies by presenting the case of the prosecution of the Brown family, stars of Sister Wives, by the State of Utah.

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri 2015 University of Missouri - Columbia

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract:

Online religious literacy education framed within metaliteracy in a congregational context is a little-researched topic. Congregational religious educators tend to focus more on in-person educational opportunities regarding static content and facts about religion or devotional materials and methods than providing members with the educational processes, tools, and framework needed to explore their faith questions and other theological and religious topics for lifelong learning from an integrative critical-devotional perspective. Available literature within the subject area of online religious and theological education generally focuses on the educational endeavors of seminarians, clergy, and students within K-12 educational institutions, thus leaving unaddressed the ...

and

Mark Stover, Dean of the Library at California State University, Northridge

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Kent State University

Abstract:

From its inception, cinema has been used to portray the information seeking and dissemination practices of clergy and, by extension, to present perspectives on religion and religious organizations. Initially fairly simplistic, these depictions of priests, ministers, rabbis, and nuns have become more sophisticated over time, keeping pace ...


Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston 2015 Nyack College

Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract

In our information-saturated world, it is appropriate to ask how religious communities use data that has been gathered by reputable research and/or poll-taking organizations. Perhaps a more pertinent question would be whether religious communities do, in fact, use such information – or whether they deliberately ignore the discoveries of information-gathering groups. Do religious groups who have adopted a “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Against Culture” approach to their surroundings (borrowing H. Richard Niebuhr’s classic paradigm) tend to go their own way despite the sociological and demographic information made available to them? Would the various “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Of Culture” groups ...

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz 2015 Drexel University

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract: Advances in technology allow for new modes of access to both secular and religious information. Historically, some religious groups seem to have been eager to acknowledge technological developments, while others have done so reluctantly. Nevertheless, the sustainability of a religious tradition depends on the ability of its practitioners to continually access information in an evolving world. Modern technology has occasioned such innovations as online religious communities and the wide availability of sacred texts and exegeses, to the extent that a person can practice a religion using entirely online tools—without ever setting foot in a physical place of worship ...


In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith 2015 Kent State University

In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

The Orphic (and to a lesser extent, Bacchic) mystery tradition are unique among ancient Greco-Roman cults. Whereas mainstream Greco-Roman cults were sanctioned by the state, with rituals that followed a set format of sacrifice and feasting, the Orphic tradition was a secret initiatory tradition, with written rituals relying heavily on sacred texts. The Orphic tradition is also unique in that, rather than operating out of specific temples, it has no center of worship. Rather, itinerant priests traveled from location to location with their holy books, seeking individual worshippers. Because they traveled to different locations, the tradition is eclectic, as the ...

Diverstiy Question, Howard Schaap 2015 Dordt College

Diverstiy Question, Howard Schaap

Faculty Work

"If I live in a small town, and all the people there are white, and I look around at my church and see that we’re all white—is that really a bad thing? Scripture’s vision from creation through Pentecost to the New Jerusalem is a diverse vision—it includes all tribes, nations, and languages and that inclusion is by design. But what do we do in small town Midwest churches about diversity?"

The Intersections Of Music, Love, And Worship, Jacob C. Wessel 2015 Liberty University

The Intersections Of Music, Love, And Worship, Jacob C. Wessel

Senior Honors Theses

When a right understanding of the doctrine of love infiltrates the art of music in the event of corporate worship, an opportunity arises for a unique synergism of knowledge, emotion and relationships. These qualities are paramount in the doctrine of love and practice of corporate worship, and they are especially encouraged by the powers of music. An exploration of these three aspects of love—knowledge, emotion and relationships—is here provided with special attention to the opportunity music and worship provide for intersections between them.
