I was sitting in the back row with a bunch of our awesome youth Sunday in church.
The Pastor told us to turn into our Bibles...
This is what I saw when I looked down the aisle... (& yes, that's mine as well on my leg)
Its not like the Bibles of the old days, where you hear pages turn... but you see people with little contraptions in their hands... smart phones, ipods, ipads... the Bible of today.
I have to say, I love my paper Bible - just as I love REAL books. I havent made the switch to a "reader" yet - though I am drooling over Kindles & may put it on my wish list this year.
But one of the girls in the youth group showed me how to download it on my ipod & it was free - so I gave it a go.
I have to say, I was impressed. With just a touch of a button, I can find my book - then my chapter - then my verse. And then with just another touch, I can change my version. I can also highlight & save & "write" notes to save for anything that strikes me. All on this little handy dandy ipod.
What a world we live in...
Believe me - I still tote around my Bible. I've got too many notes in it - parts of me... I'll always keep it - but how handy to know I always have the Bible near me when I want to look something up.
How about you? You use a Bible app? Do you see that same thing in your church? The kids holding their "Bibles" in their pocket? Hey - there's worse apps they could have on their phones - right?
