For discussion

February 1, 2012 | Feature | Number 3

1. What technology does your congregation use in worship? What are the challenges to learning how to use new technology in worship? How much power is wielded by those who control the sound board?

2. Andy Brubacher Kaethler argues that technology is not neutral, but that technology shapes the message. Do you agree? How is the message of technology different from the message of Jesus?

3. Kaethler says that our technological gadgets and tools promise greater efficiency, but discerning the presence of God usually requires silence and patience. When is efficiency a problem? Do our gadgets foster or hinder community?

4. What would electronic-free worship be like? Do traditional Mennonites who avoid some modern technology have wisdom to share?
