Of cellphones, churches, and preaching

06 Oct

cell-phone-collectionA family we know in Russia has people leave their cellphones in a basket during meals and small group times. I’m guessing it removes distractions and promotes conversations.

Maybe we should ask people to leave their cellphones at the door of the church. That way, they wouldn’t ring while I am preaching, as they have done weekly for the past 4-6 weeks. Of course, people would need to bring a physical Bible since many use the Bible app on their phone.

This past week, I vented to our staff about cell phones in church and proposed buying a cell phone jammer for the worship services, that is, until I learned they were illegal. Oh well, we’ll just have to remind people to silence their phone before the worship service starts.
