It is sad to say that our churches, as well as businesses, are making life less enjoyable for those of us who don’t have the Internet. I could make a long list of ways they are doing this, but my main complaint is in church media.
I wonder if our churches realize how they are hurting their membership by not mailing newsletters anymore. Many of us look forward to the personal notes, wedding and shower announcements, etc., that used to be included in our newsletters. Now our newsletter at our church is just a neatly printed list of upcoming functions and activities of the church and must be picked up at church. Any other information has to be put on an insert of the church bulletin — which you don’t get if you are absent.
This is very disappointing to many of us who look forward to receiving a newsletter in the mail that lets us know when one of our brothers and sisters in Christ needs prayer, has been sick or is in the hospital, sends “thank-yous” or announces the arrival of a baby, an upcoming celebration, etc.
I feel like I speak for many others whose lives don’t depend on a computer. We’ve spent many years doing our share of work in the church and deserve some consideration in the decisions made.
