Hi subscriber,

Here's a thought, a quote, and a resource I wanted to share with you this Thursday.

We thought we were pretty technologically advanced back in 1989, the age of cassette answering machines and dot matrix printer. A mentor told me something that summer that’s stuck with me: the more high-tech we become, the more deeply personal (he said “high touch” at the time) our ministry must become.

That’s become tougher this year due to the pandemic. We're all having to figure out how to use technology in ministry. Some are arguing that we should embrace a permanent shift to digital church.

I'm convinced that the more we live our lives online, the more we need to look for analog ways of relating to each other with screens tucked away. That may be harder now, but it’s still a goal worth pursuing.

(See Analog Church: Why We Need Real People, Places, and Things in the Digital Age for more on this theme.)

“To be wholly committed to God in the place where God wants him—this is the creature glorified … This is the way of the Christian: he should choose the lesser place until God extrudes him into a position of more responsibility and authority … Quietness and peace before God are more important than any influence a position may seem to give, for we must stay in step with God to have the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Francis Schaeffer, No Little People)

If you wait long enough, you can get almost any ebook on sale. Check out gospelebooks.net for daily email alerts on Christian book sales. It focuses on Kindle, but there’s a good chance that you’ll also find the same books on sale on the platform of your choice.
Thanks for reading!
