Our latest episode features Ian Hsu, Founder of Prayvine. Prayvine is a non-profit that provides an online space for people to pray more effectively for missionaries. While Ian aims to bring mission workers and their supporters closer together, his work brings up deeper questions about technology, human behavior, and relationships. Is praying online legitimate? How does technology impact our spiritual lives if we type our prayers on a screen? Can God actually use us when we pray on the internet? Join ATN host Paul Taylor and Ian as they explore these fascinating questions and more.
