Modern society is increasingly communicating in ways that our ancestors would never have imagined possible. One of these means is through text messages. While they are valuable for the transferring of information, they also affect the ways that we communicate matters of great importance including emotions.

This webinar will look at some of the latest statistics about and evaluations of text messages. It will then compare these modern forms of communications with the correspondence Paul makes with the Corinthians. It will then make suggestions as how to appreciate ancient letters in a world where many communicate with short texts .
