I came across this neat article posted by @FaithOnlineHQ on Twitter. I see huge insight here into the need for immediate, personal contact in an environment that is so abstract.
This system can be implemented pretty easily now through may of the church-broadcasting systems’ chat functions.
Yet I wonder if there’s broader potential here in the future? We wouldn’t want to diminish or substitute in-person engagement when services are live again… but maybe through an app it could be a supplement for submitting prayer requests or feedback on events in real time, or something else. Thoughts on the pros/cons?
