I think that it is a no brainer for the denomination to offer resources on the Amazon Kindle. Imagine these available electronically and portably:
- The Book of Discipline
- The Book of Resolutions
- The Book of Worship
- The Pocket Book of Worship
I found myself wishing for this last weekend when I was at the bedside of a dying congregant. I did not have my pocket book of worship, but did have my iPhone via the Kindle App. I wished that I could have had those resources at my finger tips.
In addition, Kindle‘s could be given to General Conference participants and updates could be received electronically and in a way that is searchable – no need to print volumes of paper.
What might be preventing the United Methodist Publishing House from moving in this direction? How might I (or you) be helpful in making this possibility a reality?
