Technology and Worship

A good article on Technology and Worship from byFaith Online. I particularly note the comment that:

Young people witness some of the cheesy video and computer "art" in worship and they see it for what it is: kitsch. Stock clip art. Old-fashioned, 19th-century background images under song text: the sun shining on the Cross, running streams, baby faces -- all of the stereotypical images that say, "Christians are crummy artists and naive sentimentalists." To them, such kitsch is like handing out illustrated kids' Bibles to high school students and telling them that these images represent the depth of insight and excellence of the Christian faith.

Which is why, in my opinion, we need to empower more artists like Jeff Holmberg, who are 1) young enough to "get it", and 2) artistic enough to "get it".
