A laptop in the pulpit can't replace a pastor, but it has become an indispensable preaching tool, says a producer who helps clergy get comfortable with technology.
Stewart Heller brings conservative pastors who know their way around new media into classes at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. Evangelical Christians long ago tapped technology, and liberal congregations must do the same, said Heller, an executive producer of four Emmy Awards shows.
"Braveheart" or "Bruce Almighty" and other secular movie clips?!?! you have got to be kidding me.
Nothing like making murder, revenge and blasphemy a staple of the church to teach truth... NOT!
As for the comment "There's not a lot of difference between a church and a movie theater. Worship services are focused around storytelling." This is so wrong its not even funny. Theaters/movies are for amusement (keep in mind that "muse" means to think and contemplate; "A" is used to show the opposite of a thing = so a+muse means to not think). As for indicating that worship is about storytelling and not worshipping and praising God, this just shows how people are changing the definitions that God put in place and are trying to make church amusing and attractive instead of preaching the whole message of salvation (which according to scripture is not that amusing or attractive).
