Here is an excerpt from my latest article at Southern Equip:
“I grew up surrounded by technology. I am child of the 80s, a time before most people had a personal computer much less the internet in their home. But my dad worked for Xerox for over 25 years so we have had a personal computer and some form of the internet for as long as I can remember. We had the old dial up modems that would kick your sister off the phone with her boyfriend when you logged on. My dad decided to add two phone lines to our home so that the sibling fights would stop. Those days seem like an eternity ago in this internet powered digital age.
In 2018, we have a host of new technology issues to think through like protecting our online privacy in a world of data mining and how to deploy artificial intelligence in ethical ways. Even our coffee pots and other household items are “smart” and connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and these items have more processing power than some supercomputers did in the when I growing up
So how do we minister to and help guide our churches through this digital age?”
