Blame it on the Tylenol...

The world is so much smaller, and our ability to impact it, so much larger. It's hard for me to fully comprehend the idea that I woke up almost 9,000 miles away from home yesterday, yet this morning I sit at my computer in the familiar sorroundings of my home office in Lake Mary, Florida. The astounding developments in technology make it continually easier and safer to fly long distances over shorter periods of time. The internet makes it considerably easier to communicate with people globally at the click of a button. All of this amazing technology serves the Gospel really well!


Because of the internet, I can share my thoughts with the world through blogging, so that people who want to, can vicariously live my life experiences with me. Because of the Internet I can e-mail people an encouraging (or discouraging, depending on the context) word, send e-faxes, and generally conduct my daily business no matter how far from my home base I am. I absolutely love this! How else can people I've never met, who literally live on opposite corners of the globe from me, offer me condolences, prayers and encouragement at the mere click of a button? There is a global village that exists in the Internet world, many of whom must be recognized as a vast "unreached people group" in and of themselves. That's why I'm sitting at my desk on four and a half hours of sleep, dazed by the residual effects of Tylenol P.M. rambling on and on about... well, nothing really.

So, in case you're visiting for the first time or are a recent visitor to Seasons of Change, before you mark this as one of the blogs that has nothing to offer by way of sensible content, I'm going to sign off now and get some more sleep. I promise I'll be more profound and inspiring tomorrow. Meanwhile, what things in your life have been made easier by the advances in technology?
