#CNMAC14: Speaker Profile with Danny Webster (@danny_webster)

There’s another excellent line-up for the fifth Christian New Media Conference (1st November 2014, The Brewery, London). With CODEC involved in developing the line-up, we’ve given the speakers the opportunity to answer a few questions:

danny-websterWho are you, what do you do, and how does your story feed into #CNMAC14?

I work for the Evangelical Alliance as part of the advocacy team, focused on encouraging Christians to become leaders in public life. I blog at www.brokencameras.com when I’m inspired, and in other places when people let me.

Can you give us a ‘sneak peek’ into your session at #CNMAC14?

With Marika Rose I’ll be looking at how social media has changed how we think about theology and particular Christian doctrine. There’s so much opportunity for discussion, debate, and disagreement online is there any space left for the Church to hold some things as timelessly true?

Session description: Transforming Doctrine: Being right, having rights, getting it right: With online discussions raging about same sex marriage, gender roles, ecclesiology and Christology, how is the digital age offering opportunities to transform or confirm the theology of the Church?

The theme for 2014 is ‘Transforming Church, Transforming Society’. What do you see as important areas within this theme?

There’s so much change both in the church and society sometimes the pace can be dizzying. One key challenge is how, amid so much change, do we help bring about change?

What do you think a digital age mean for us, seeking transformational living?

Maybe Take That got it right, ‘everything changes but you’. I wonder if we get so caught up in change that we forget what doesn’t change. In the digital age we’re in I think holding onto that can help us live lives that are both transformed and able to bring transformation.

Outside of your own session, what are you most looking forward to at #CNMAC14?

Witnessing (but not participating in) Vicky Walker’s networking time last year was a sight to behold, so may try and spy on that and do my best not to actually do too much networking (I’m quite an introvert).

Check out more on the conference itself where we’d love to see you (easy to book here), or see the archives from previous years.
