Always on the lookout for new ways of spreading the Gospel, Christian evangelists have discovered the iPod.
This is especially attractive since users of iPod players are primarily young people, i.e. the age group most difficult to reach. Phil Lewis writes in The Christian Post (Nov. 21) that Podcasting allows a preacher to make his sermons available to everybody and everywhere, more easily and at a much lower cost than producing tapes.
This is provided, of course, that there are people are willing to listen. Some experiences with the technology are reported to be encouraging, with the communications director of a church in Kansas counting up to 4,000 people downloading the sermon of the previous Sunday. (www.christianpost.com)
