Godbloggers Prepare to Invade ‘Sin City’

20 septembrie 2008

The largest annual gathering of Christian bloggers is set to invade “sin city” this weekend, challenging hundreds to find ways to live „Christianly” in a Web 2.0 world.

The fourth annual GodblogCon will kick off in Las Vegas as part of BlogWorld and the New Media Expo – the world’s largest blogging trade show and conference dedicated to promoting the dynamic industry of blogging and new media.

Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., one of the nation’s most prominent evangelical leaders and a “Godblogger” himself, is among the increasing number of Christians who have highlighted the importance of utilizing the internet for God’s purposes.

There may be 50 million blogs by the year 2010, Mohler said at last year’s GodblogCon, arguing against the idea that blogging is just a fad.

In an era where „new media” is changing the way people communicate and understand the world, Mohler said it’s imperative that Christians communicate, especially online.

Some of the topics at this year’s GodblogCon include “The Art of Online Conversation,” “The Missional Church in the Internet Age,” and “The Internet, Media Ecology, and Christian Consciousness.”
