Email Under Control – To E or not to E?

If you are reading this, you are probably the kind of person who uses email. You might even be the kind of person who has always used email. I have used email pretty much since it began – and I like it…

BUT… as a pastor, and as a human being, I find more and more that I need to answer the question ‘To E or not to E?’
Email is quick, but that sometimes leads to minimal communication…
…minimal communication is great for some people, but not for other people
…minimal communication is great for some subjects, but not for other subjects
…minimal communication is great for some times, but not for other times

As a pastor, and as a human being, I want to make sure that email helps build relationships and that any ‘virtual community’ facilitates real life and real community.

‘To E or not to E?’ That is a question I must remember to ask.
