from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

Authenticity and Planning

Carlos Whittaker has a great article in this month’s Sunday Magazine on how technology has affected our need to plan ahead for services and other programs. There was a time when only less than a handful of people were involved in carrying out a regular church service. That meant much could be done at the last minute because no one else needed to know or prepare anything. That’s not the case in more in technology driven churches.

Carlos makes some very good points. I believe technology forces us to dig deeper, spend more time with God, and be more disciplined in hearing from him. God certainly knows what we need to do well ahead of time. We just need to start listening a little more and a little sooner.
