A few years ago, when I preached at my local UMC church, I did use the iPad.
Tonight and this weekend, I am once again preaching.
I was tempted to bring my iPad. After all, it allows for last minute changes to the sermon, looks really cool holding it, and is there incase I need back up via Logos.
But, it also contains my games and other… things.
So, instead of preaching from the iPad, I’m going to have my notes, my rosary hidden in my pocket, and my REB. This is not to say anyone who uses the iPad to preach, or some other tablet, is committing some blasphemous error, even though you clearly are, but I think in the end, if we are to preach, and the more so about the sufficiency of Scripture, then having the table there, complete with distractions, games, and other non-Scriptural things, present may send a mixed message.
But, I am not a regular preacher. Nor do I want to be.
So, what are your thoughts?
