One Church Allows People in the Congregation to Text Questions to the Preacher During the Sermon

As a lay person in the pew, I’ve always thought it would be cool to flash questions, commentary, etc., at the pastor during his (or her) sermon.  (At my church, that’s possible because there’s a screen right in front of the pulpit, but…)

Well, near Charleston, SC, one church is trying just that:

I’m sure that only my tech guys are as excited as I am about a new feature we launched this morning at St. Andrew’s.  Never-the-less . . .

This morning we inaugurated a system that allows individuals to text message a central number – during the service – with a question relating to the sermon.  Our communications team then culls the questions and passes along to the preacher the “best” question(s) allowing them (if all goes well) to answer before the service ends.  Other questions will then be addressed via blogging throughout the week.

Now a challenge to my anointed friends at MissionalCOG: whom among you is cutting edge (and sure of himself) enough to try this?
