My Visit to Word on Fire

Last week I had the extreme privilege of meeting one my great heroes, Fr. Robert Barron. He and his Word on Fire staff invited me to Chicago to deliver a couple talks on new media and the New Evangelization.

Three phenomenal evangelists and me

As you can imagine, the whole day was a blast. There was a lot of great conversation before and after my talks, I got to check out Fr. Barron’s library (an occasion of sin for this bibliophile), and I loved meeting face-to-face with many online friends—especially the erudite Fr. Steve Grunow and the wonderful Rozann Carter.

Fr. Steve and Rozann are the primary contributors to the Word on Fire blog, which is one of my daily must-reads. And today they’re recapping my visit with pictures and links:

Last week, Brandon Vogt came up to Chicago from Florida to present a Day of Reflection for the Word on Fire staff. The author of The Church and New Media and an emerging expert in the use of digital media for the New Evangelization, Brandon offered his keen insight into the innerworkings of the “virtual Areopagus.”

Here, Rozann Carter re-caps the event, connecting you to loads of free information so that you can incorporate Brandon’s research into your efforts at spreading the Gospel.
