 Rev. Gadget: N.S. church to bless cellphones, computers

A Nova Scotia church is offering its congregation a chance to have members' cellphones, laptops and mobile technology blessed - but Rev. Lisa Vaughn isn't promising the power of God will rid the gadgets of viruses and other kinks.
On Sunday, parishioners at St. Timothy's Anglican Church in Hatchet Lake, N.S., are encouraged to bring in the devices they use to conduct business and to stay in touch with the world.

"Because it's Labour Day weekend, we thought it would be nice to connect people's everyday work tools with worship and gathering together as a church community," said Vaughan, who plans to bring along her laptop for a blessing.

The church, about 15 kilometres southwest of Halifax, is no stranger to embracing a more modern flair during its services. Every Sunday night, the church has live rock music as well as slide shows and video presentations.

The church, which currently has a Facebook page and hopes to join the realm of Twitter in the near future, is continuing its effort to stay relevant in a technology-heavy world, Vaughn said.

"We're not just blessing inanimate objects and hoping the hard drive doesn't crash, we're also blessing the hands that use it."
