What Do We Do With the Blessings That Technology Brings?

image Peter Mead has a good post entitled "Blessing and Responsibilities."  In it he talks about the blessing we have today with computers and Internet and media.  But with that added blessing come some additional responsibilities. 

In one particularly cogent paragraph he says: 

We may be able to do instant concordance searches and access lexical information at the touch of a mouse button.  So what do we do with the extra time no longer spent flicking through chunky tomes of fine print?  If the fruit of quicker access to information is cheaper exegesis, then the church will be all the poorer for these advances in technology. Let’s try to take the time our predecessors had to spend in page turning in prayerful interaction with the text and the sermon preparation process.

I would recommend his entire post.  It can be found here.
