As you know if you’ve been reading my blog or know anything about me, I LOVE technology. I am a huge fan of www.youversion.com. If you have never heard of it or used it you’re missing out. As the community of user continues to grow you have access to God’s word but also many people’s different views of scripture. They can share a video, picture, link or text about a verse that they think relates to that verse. Definitely go sign up and add me as a friend. My name is TIMLEM on youversion.
Now this next part really excites me. YouVersion announced yesterday that they are introducing a new feature called YouVersion Live. This will enable churches/conferences to share bible verses/notes live with people using their mobile device or laptop. It also enables them to particpate by answering polls and other interactive features. I know it will be a while before we get to this point (especially in SouthWest Virginia) but imagine a day when we no longer have to print bulletins instead we pull out our phones and have access to the notes and scripture. I already do this using Evernote on my iPhone during church. Rather than taking notes on some piece of paper and going home and losing that piece of paper (I hate keeping up with paper – I learned that bad habit from Greg) I can just take notes in Evernote and then when I think what was that verse Jimmie mentioned last year in that message about pain, I can just search for it and find it instantly. (longest sentence I’ve ever written)
Anyways, see the video below for a sneak peak from ChurchCrunch.com:
