Smart phones, iPads, and the like continue to receive negative reception from some church authorities in Anchorage. My brother, Robin, is a N. California political cartoonist. I’m happy to share his satirical view regarding this issue.

I firmly believe pastors and church leaders should encourage attendees to use the Bible in whatever form is comfortable. If that means contextually comfortable use of iPhone, iPads, iPods, iTouch, computers, Kindles, Nooks, or any other device of choice, pastors should not be decrying such use from the pulpit.
Never before in the history of the world has the Bible been made available in such a dizzying array of forms and versions. One prominent local pastor often expresses he doesn’t care what form of Bible is being used, saying the fact you’re using it is the most important thing. In a day when fewer people read the Bible regularly, it’s refreshing to see the variety of ways in which the Bible is available.
