At this point in time all of us (at least in this area of the world) are aware of the technological wonders that can make ministry a bit more ‘user-friendly’. One of the main ways this has worked in my own favor has been my usage of the resources at BibleGateway.com. The sources are good and easy to use. I can cut-and-paste verses or quotes from various commentaries, compare versions and access it even from my phone if need be.
As for other tech, I have preached from printed notes most of the time, but on several occasions I have resorted to using my tablet or and iPad in the pulpit. However, technology can and DOES have drawbacks. I came across an interesting article for those of you who might be thinking of going this route.
