10-12-2014 Pastor’s Note

As much as we have gotten used to instant contact and easy access with so many of us having cell phones, tablets, computers, and all the associated programs and apps, it’s hard to imagine a time when writing letters was the common means of communication. All my growing up years in Tucson we lived at 56 W. Limberlost. There were 3 other families who lived in the group of homes we were in, the Hardings, the Maloneys, and the Zimmermans. Of the 4 families, only the Hardings had a phone, and they had it operational only occasionally, when Mr. Harding was able to pay the bill. The extended family connection was the mailbox. There was a means of communication with friends before Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or FaceTime. It was face. Face to face. It did have its advantages.

  Those who developed what we now know as the internet or the World Wide Web, warn that there is a need for development of an entirely separate backup system, in preparation for what they say is the inevitable failure and crash of the internet. What would we do without the use of our cell phones for a while? We survived growing up without a phone. Maybe we would have more inclination to read God’s Letters to us, found in that Old Book that doesn’t have to rely on a good internet connection to get its message across.
