You know your church has gone over the electronic age when:

-The pastor reads his sermon from a palm-held computer "notepad"

-There are cell phone chargers next to tithe pew-pencil drill holes

-MCI takes out full-page ads in the church bulletin

-At the church flea market, used cell phones and answering machines outnumber bowling balls, blenders and electric can-openers.

When the bells are rung at the end of the service, half the congregation reaches into pockets or purses to see if it was for them. (Theologically speaking, of course, it was).
