After witnessing a comment section spiral out of control, an aunt’s unsavory Facebook post, or a coworker’s controversial Twitter feed, the online sphere may feel beyond repair. Is it reasonable to think that hope and peace can be achieved in today's online communication climate—where incivility often runs unchecked?

Let us join together and pray that we may be overflowing with hope and peace (Rom. 15:13), asking God to use us to redeem the online sphere. At our conference—Digital Hope: Reclaiming the Online Public Sphere—communication, public relations, and social media experts will consider communication strategies and spiritual disciplines that can help us extend compassion and civility when emotions run high as we communicate online.
