Welcome to part two of our two-part series on technology, church, and culture.

For today’s episode, Heather sits down with Brad Hill, who is the chief solutions officer at Gloo, which has recently developed a new initiative that helps churches navigate AI. What is AI? How is it impacting church culture? Should we be concerned as Christians about its potential? Heather gets answers to these questions and more during today’s conversation.

Heather also discusses deepfake videos and AI manipulation as it relates to the Princess Catherine cancer video during today’s social toolkit. Here is an article Heather found in The Washington Post about conspiracy theories and AI.
