The latest study by AOL says that Americans are addicted to email and while a big deal is being made about the fact that 60% of Blackberry owners check their emails in bed, what surprised me more is that 12% email in church. What a shame!
Like most people, I read, watch television, and chat with my wife in bed (apart from sleeping and sex), and therefore, checking email in bed is nothing to talk about. However, church (or any other place of worship) should be an opportunity to leave everything else behind and focus on the spirit. If you are addicted to your email so much, don’t waste your time in the church; use that time instead to sit down on your desk and take care of your email. That will be so much better.
