I Love Technology...

I was talking with a friend today about technology and ministry. The discussion led to this question: With all the technology available today, should investing more time in technology start to replace investing time in "real-world" relationships? My answer: absolutely not!

Don't get me wrong, I believe the church has a responsibility to make the best use possible of the available technology. And I think technology right now has some cool applications for ministry (i.e. blogging, podcasts, MySpace). But as that technology continues advancing, relational ministry is more important than ever before. Students today can completely shut themselves off from the world around them if they want to which means there is NOTHING more meaningful to them than sitting across from them with a cup of coffee and talking about life.
