Remote Society

Intel, Yahoo to Offer Software for Web Access on TV

I walked into a TV repair shop this week. It was a small little store on the backside of a strip mall. I didn't know they existed anymore. Computer repair, yes. TV? On one of the shelves of the small shop was a small 12" TV. It had a on and off switch, volume, VHF knob, and UHF. No remote. It wasn't on, so I don't know if it was color or not.

Now we don't give remotes to TVs a second thought, or cordless phones. Everything is becoming remote, and so are our relationships with people. While there's an upside to all this tech advancements, there's a downside as well. You can get fire someone from their job by remote email now. People marry by finding their spouse by remote means.

Churches are no different. They are remote now. A large section of the Church will go in the direction of creating remote congregations. I think this is the way of the future that must be embraced by some (not all).
