Stephen Garner is a friend, but we've never met in person. He's in New Zealand, and we've spoken on and off for several years via each other's blogs and on email.
Within that I am still amazed at how technology has extended and enabled relationships in my life.
Stephen lectures in practical theology, and has a special interest in relationships of theology and religion with science, technology and media. He's also interested in the interaction of spirituality with technology, and social justice issues relating to technology and the environment.
