What's obsolete in your church that you're still using?

NBC News has compiled a list of twelve technologies that should be totally gone from society… but for one reason or another live on.

Here’s the list:

1. Dial-up internet

2. Pagers

3. Dot matrix printers

4. PDA’s

5. Pay phones

6. VHS and cassette tapes

7. Landline phones

8. CRT televisions

9. Film cameras

10. Windows 98 and 2000

11. Fax machines

12. Vinyl records

I’m wondering… what ‘obsolete’ things is your church holding on to?

You know… things that people still use because they’re used to it, or will resort to it in a pinch… but really aren’t necessary anymore

    Well, truth being what’s obsolete is the Sr. Pastor.
    He doesn’t like any of the new technology nor does he use it. In fact every opportunity he has he is bad mouthing it.
    So, in a world where anyone over 35 is considered a technological immigrant and anyone under that is a tchnological native, how in the world is this guy going to reach the new generation?
    He’s been here less than six months and already has alienated the young, progressive and techno savvey folks.
    So sometimes what’s obsolete isn’t a thing but a way of thinking in a body of people or Leader.

    Pocket cameras and video cameras…since nearly all phones have one or both.
