Keeping the Congregation Connected
Yesterday, Carolina Christian Conservative contributor Alexander Samuels (who, by the way, deserves a lot of credit for helping me keep this blog alive for a week while I was traveling on business) wrote about John MacArthur's book Hard to Believe, which examines how the modern church ends up compromising the Gospel as it attempts to be relevant in today's culture. However, despite all of the excellent examples in his book, I doubt MacArthur could top the "hard to believe" news out of Wales today.
Reuters in London reports: . . .
British telecoms operator BT Group Plc has wired up a church in Wales to allow the congregation to hook onto local high-speed Internet connections when they want a break from the sermon.
Britain's largest fixed-line telecoms operator said on Tuesday it had installed a Wi-Fi wireless network access point, known as a hotspot, in Reverend Keith Kimber's St John's Rectory church in the city of Cardiff.
"The church has to move with the times and I wanted to make St John's a sanctuary for everyone, including business people with laptops and mobiles," Kimber said in a statement issued by BT.
"I have no problem with people quietly sending an email or surfing the Internet in church, as long as they respect the church."
I guess that's one way to get bloggers to go to church.
