What potential does the current digital revolution have for helping us better care for one another in the worst times of our lives?  Deanna Thompson, author, speaker, and professor of Religion at Hamline University addresses this question in her latest book, "The Virtual Body of Christ in a Suffering World."  After a stage IV cancer diagnosis, Thompson comes to embrace the the potential of digital tools to enhance relationships.  She suggests that "the body of Christ can and does exist virtually and makes embodied difference in the lives of those who are hurting."
