Texting During Church. Is It OKAY?

May 2, 2010

Every now and then, when the pastor says something especially interesting, I’ll text it to my “status update distribution service” that will in turn send it to twitter, facebook, and about 20 other social networking sites that I don’t really pay attention to but am on anyway.

Today this became an issue, but not by people at church, by people on facebook who don’t think that I ought to be texting while service is in progress.  What is really interesting is that the whole thing that started it was a friend of mine who probably isn’t saved made a joke about me sending a text during church.  Her comment pretty much launched an interesting conversation about whether or not I did was appropriate.

This is what I sent out to the world:

“Wow… the pastor just encouraged his church to pray FOR our leaders and not AGAINST.  Nice!”

This is the second reply:

“U should ask that pastor to come to Kenya.  We need tremendous intercession for our leaders.”

Now, I consider this a huge victory!  Not only did I get to share with the people who subscribe to my feeds this simple yet interesting thought, but I also learned about something that I needed to pray for today!

In my opinion, I think that texting during church is a great thing.  I know that several of you here do it.  Especially when the pastor says something interesting that is worth (and easy) to share.

What is your opinion?
