HAPPY MONDAY FRIENDS!
Hope your SuperbowlSunday was awesome...
Today i wanted to talk about something i have been wondering for awhile now.
A few weeks ago, i saw a lady at Church holding out her phone.
What happened to turning off your phone at Church since Jesus is NOT trying to reach you via your phone!
Come to find out she was reading her Bible scripture from her cell phone.
On Friday, i attended a church event and another couple were using their phones to access scriptures.
Perhaps it is the new trend...after all we use our phones everywhere else.
Now i am not sure how i feel about Electronics at Church.
I have an iPad and an iPhone and both i can use to access the Bible
but the idea of bringing my electronics into the Church building makes me wonder how appropriate it is.
Aren't we supposed to leave our phones at home, in our purses, out of sight at Church because we are supposed to be concentrating on the message.
I know some Pastors use iPads to read their sermons but this also makes me pause.
What happened to the old fashion Bible...the actual book you take to Church with you.
I am all for using electronics to read The Book at home BUT for some reason...that's where i think we should leave it....there is something sacred about bringing your actual Bible to Church.
Again...bringing our electronics to Church is easy and compact.
But then again...our phones can be such a distraction...
i can just imagine myself checking out blogs or tweeting
while i am supposed to be following along the message.
Am i alone on this one?
Maybe i am being too sentimental!
What are your thoughts?
