A new message on this old medium

So look here is a post.
I'll give you a minute to recover.

It's been a long time since I've written ANYTHING. Not here - Not anywhere.
It's not like nothing has happened. umm let's see.

Got Married. - could have written about that eh?
thought I should at least write about that. I will keep Brea's mentions to a minimum because she like to keep a low web profile.

But - I am back wanting to write. I think, what I care about has changed, or is in the process of changing.

It started with a book by Shane Hipps and his thought on media, faith and the church - but also his focus on the writings of Marshall Mcluhan on the laws of media. I've started to look at how the church adopt technology with out much thought as to the effects. It has really caused me to think about how we use technology in our faith - in our lives - everywhere.

I don't want to say that this is the beginning of some new blogging experience. Been there done that But I do want to start some conversations about how I think we are just buying into the flow of technology and consumerism (yeah, I'm on that pony too)

Not sure what that is going to look like yet... but here we go.

I hear yah about tech in church. I am a SDA (Seventh Day Adventist) and we do not bring much into the curch as far as tech goes, we do use sound equipment and a computer for the words to songs, but that is about it. I have seen some churches use tons of tech equipment with sound to get different sounds plus the video equipment for interesting visual effects.

P.S. my wife and I both keep a low profile on the internet. It is scary what you can find about the information about yourself on the internet.
