Yet another story appeared this week on how churches are utilizing technology. “‘Godcasts’ Spread the Gospel” appeared in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Sunday. I’m amazed that this continues to be news. Are churches that far out of touch that no one expects us to use technology? Thus churches tapping into new innovations warrants news? Weird.
As cool as technology is (and I admit to being a tech booster), we always need to remember that balance is in order. I love the comment from Rabbi James Rudin, senior inter-religious adviser for the American Jewish Committee:
“Human touch can never be replaced,” Rudin said. “The congregation will always be the sum of its people.”
Oh, and the article quoted some guy named Brad Abare.
