THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS is a monthly public discussion that takes up the most important issues of our times among an amazing diversity of interesting people. Join the conversation this month as we discuss “Love at First Swipe: The Effect of Technology on Love and Relationships." As our society becomes increasingly connected through smartphones, apps, and social media, the frequency and nature of romantic connection are inevitably changing as well. Has technology changed intimacy for better or for worse? What goals should we be striving toward in romantic relationships, and to what extent does technology help us or hurt us in reaching those goals? How should we interact with technology to best facilitate romantic flourishing – and what does that actually mean today? Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others'.
