Need to make your church service more interactive? Well, one pastor in North Carolina did just that … Wikipedia style. United Methodist (and Duke Divinity School student) Reverend Philip Chryst has set up WikiWorship—a website to source questions from the public for more interactive sermons.
Chryst tells The Christian Post:
"The reason I decided on WikiWorship was based in Wikipedia. Anyone can edit the content of Wikipedia, so we decided to take on this post-modern posture of turning the microphone around and allowing anyone to edit the content of a worship service. Of course there is always singing, scripture reading, and prayers. But this allows everyone to have a voice, not just the one person who is pontificating from the pulpit …. By having the patience to listen we then embody hope to the world."
