Technology has a keen way of "updating" our life. A new and better program, an updated version of an old application, or a new device has come into the marketplace and has found a use in the world of worship. Or even a subscription to a website service geared toward making our life easier as worship leaders and planners so that we can concentrate on ministry and not on utilitarian things such as phone calls, emails, etc.
I know that we have talked about clouds, technology, worship planning, projection screens, microphones, etc. but I thought it would be good to check into our ever-changing world of technology and if we have moved on to a better or different method, process or device in worship itself or in worship planning.
For an example, one person who is a member of our congregation uses an IPAD for worship. The order of worship is sent to her in a PDF file. In the file, the order of worship has the all the songs (with music), scripture texts, litanies, etc. This is so that this person does not have to shuffle multiple books, etc. during worship since it is difficult for her to use books and be in a wheelchair. The PDF file is read through her ibooks app on her IPAD and can be brought up like any other "book" in her library. It is sent to her via email and can be downloaded from there.
By the way, we don't have a projection screen in our worship space at this time. Even if we did have a screen, she would not be able to see it when people are standing in front of her, so it wouldn't help her in worship.
What new devices, programs, planning patterns, worship aids are you using or considering using in worship? What brought you (or will bring you) to that decision?
