We live in space, in time, among other people, with all kinds of needs and influence and desires. Our lives are connected, so that what we do and how we act impacts others. Even more, our environments matter. The places we live, the earth we inhabit, our homes. But do we think of ourselves in those terms when we consider media and communications? How do we practice responsibility for our communications ecology, especially in and for the Church? Our guest today is asking questions like that. He is Brett Robinson, director of communications and Catholic media studies at the McGrath Institute for Church Life.
