Global events demonstrate the dramatic impact of today’s information technologies. What do  changing patterns of information access and interchange mean for the world’s faith traditions – established and emerging? Will they change the face of religious belief and practice? If so, how?

A panel, moderated by Bill Tammeus, author of Faith Matters Blog and former faith editor for The Kansas City Star, discussed these questions and more. Rabbi Laura Baum, Cincinnati-based social media expert and founder of OurJewishCommunity.org; Aziza Hasan, Los Angeles-based interfaith coordinator for the Muslim Public Affairs Council; and Dr. Robert Martin, Dean of Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, D.
