I was just going to post an update blog and let everyone know that the sermon was now available online, but then I realized the amazing concept we have going through online video and I decided to turn it into a new blogging opportunity. Why? Because I spent an entire blog trying my best to describe the hilarious skit put on by the youth department knowing that I could also just tell everyone to click on the link and view the entire skit online. How crazy and great is that? We attend church one Sunday and if we missed something or even missed out on the service, we can just log on to the Internet and download a full video copy of everything that went on. Many churches even offer live web casts of the service that way if we can't make it to church in person then at least we can make it via the Internet. Think about it, technology is really moving at lightning speed!
Technology is turning out to be a fantastic tool for ministry. Of course there's a lot of things to be careful of as with any other type of tool, but for the most part, technology is helping spread the message of God at an incredibly fast and cheaper pace. However, even with the time saving opportunities provided by technology, it's important to remember that not even it can take the place of a regular daily quiet time of prayer and meditation with the Lord. Nothing can fill our hearts and minds more than the sweet communion with the Heavenly Father.
