Tech. wasn’t the key.

Tecnhopastor has an interesting thought on technology for technology sake. It reminds me of one of my articles for the Young Adult Network.

I found myself frustrated in that there was far too much talk about the use of technology and thinking that the church had to jump on the technology bandwagon because “that’s what the kids are using.” What the leaders failed to recognize was that technology was simply a tool being used for a deeper purpose — facilitating community between like minded persons. Folks used blogs and IM’s as a communications medium not because they were inherently cool, but because they wanted to connect with others and these tools allowed them to do so in a cost effective way. The communicative function must always be the driver behind the use of technology, not the other ways around.
