Long Live Email

A fellow Pastor whose blog I read recently posted this:

...I don't even know how to operate my office phone. So today I noticed a blinking light so I asked our Media Pastor for some tech support because I don't know how to get into my voice mail. Long story short, the message was from June 13. Nice! Thinking about putting a greeting on my voice mail: Leave a message and I'll try to get back to you within four months! If you want to get a hold of me you probably don't want to call. Long live email.

Well, I can totally relate to this! I am so rarely in my office and so rarely able to pick up my cell phone that email is absolutely the BEST way to reach me. I will check and return emails much faster that I will check and return voicemail. Phone is great for emergencies and sensitive conversations. Email is best for all other normal everyday communication. I agree...long live email!

Don't forget, the whole world isn't email savvy.

I guess it's a good thing that I am not called to reach the "whole world" by myself. ;-)

I know, for those folks, there's a phone.
