I feel like something needs to be said about the use of technology within our churches.
It almost seems like a requirement now that every church when it is being built, they get the Iconostasis put in and then the projectors and white screens right in front of them!!
Why is technology taking over our churches, there are some churches with not one book in them! some churches have a touchscreen on the Altar!!! why?
The Coptic Orthodox Church has been using books since books were invented.. so why the sudden change to the "latest and greatest" within the past few years??
i feel like soon we are going to have recorded liturgies just being played back on the church speakers every sunday. we wont need priests any more.. lol
ok maybe im exaggerating a bit.
but is my church the ONLY church that still uses books and does not have a projector and a white screen???
I think technology is not bad in itself, but it might not be a great help either. Is it really that difficult for churches to purchase liturgy books and Agpias? If they bought all of those books for the whole congregation it would probably cost less than the price of a projector and whitescreen.
does anyone else feel this way? or am i completely crazy?
