The way technology is making convergence possible constantly surprises me. The church needs to learn to piggy back and use this free technology for the gospel. I used to distribute tracts all over town but now it can be done via Facebook in soundbytes!
Yeah, not only how technology advances, but the rate that it evolves. I started on the Internet bandwagon in 1996, when I was starting NS, and "back then", it was 28.8 kbps dial-up, when it takes a couple of minutes for one web page to load! Back in primary to secondary school, we were on the tail-end of the floppy disk era (3.5 and 5.25-inch)!I agree about how the church needs to address and engage with technology in a positive and wholesome way, to reach out to the tech-savvy generations to come. Even President Obama utilised Web 2.0 tools and online networks like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook to connect and relate with the younger voters.See related article by 9Marks on winning entries of presenting the gospel via Twitter (in 140 characters).http://skillfulshepherds.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-would-you-present-gospel-on-twitter.html
