As a preacher myself, iPads and phones bother me while during service. However, I am learning the efficiency in using one during service. We go through a lot of scriptures during service. So being able to get to the scripture quickly is paramount for saving time. In addition, when preaching or teaching, my iPad helps me stay on track and great for quick scripture search.With a swipe or a click,preaching ais made easy. But to be honest, there is still nothing like the intimacy of feeling the bible and hearing those thin loving pages turn. So I am back now holding my bible while preaching on the pulpit.
