Fabricating faith

Nouslife, written by Durham, England based “husband; a father; a priest” Andii Bowsher, is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs because of the quirky, almost Whole Earth Catalog way he introduces topics, including a technological development, namely instant fabrication of goods.

So that’s what I thought I was getting at The Ink-Jet Future because as he puts it this “may be very significant a part of a society where increasingly things are made-to-order and manufacture is decentralised. This helps to create or reinforce a mentality of consumerist personalisation.”

Then comes the hammer.

How can our mass evangelism [even Alpha] really survive in such a world? Only at the margins. We really are going to have to explore the idea of evangelism as initial spiritual direction.

Oh dear, he’s right.

Here’s that link again.
