Though not a Luddite, I've been hesitant to embrace fully the digital age of ministry. Sure, I'm versed in e-mail, websites, PowerPoint, and the like, but I haven't been willing to put myself out there. Too many lay and ordained employees of the church use the Internet to escape their work. Lately, however, I've seen examples of successful ministry being carried out in blogs and facebook--ministry that has less to do with the author and more to do with the audience. So I'm giving it a try.
