I wasn't checking email...I promise!

Bible Gateway, a great resource for online scripture, among other things, recently noted that the greatest amount of traffic to their mobile site, mobile.biblegateway.com, is none other than Sunday morning during church.

It was comforting to know it's not just me.

Should we be encouraging people to use their mobile devices to access the Word on Sunday mornings (or whenever they worship) in order to help them become aware that the scripture is often no further away than their belt clip or purse during the rest of the week?

P.S. If you've not seen Bible Gateway's Bible-in-a-year via RSS and email, you may want to take a look. If you have trouble keeping yourself on track, having your reading show up with your regular news reading could be helpful.

    I think it's a great thing to encourage people to lookup scripture during service. It's interactive, no longer a boring sermon, but an interactive learning expirience.

    I definitely think people should be encouraged to use whatever means possible to read scripture.
    More people everyday are using technology, so why shouldn't the church, and with so many different versions of the bible available these days it can sometimes be difficult to get the full concept of the message when your reading a different version than the speaker.
    With sites like bible gateway you can read any version you like.
