No matter where you fall on the political spectrum or what your personal beliefs are, these are frightening times that we live in. At times like this, many people seek out faith to comfort them against the evils in the world. Many large churches and other houses of worship were already embracing technology before the global pandemic we now face to reach a wider audience. Now, technology is being integrated exponentially faster and by smaller organizations as well. The goal of this move is to allow people the potential to feel a sense of togetherness and belonging in a socially distant, isolated world. Religions have evolved and changed over hundreds of years; the use of technology in this manner marks a giant step toward something new and slightly different.
Some are not religious, but it is still a time of great upheaval. The only constant in this world is change, and you must be prepared for it. Technology is evolving at an exponential pace compared to prior generations and will soon change every facet of how our society functions. The development and fusion of 5G, artificial intelligence, and extended reality ( XR which encompasses AR & VR ) technologies will open the door to new worlds for people to escape to that we cannot even imagine or conceptualize fully at present.
