It almost seemed like a joke when the news first came out that a bishop of the Roman Catholic Church gave his endorsement of an iPhone/iPad app that helps parishioners prepare for confession by stepping them through the 10 commandments and asking them questions to prompt their memory about sins they have committed.

But it was no joke.  Which got Ray and Steve thinking out loud about technology, its impact on issues of faith, its use within a faith practice, and ultimately a subject that is of prime importance with or without technology: relationships.

By the way, the blog post that Ray and Steve talk about at some point in this podcast is Multiplication Ministry and Maturity, written by Steve on his old Theological Musings blog (now largely silent and gathering dust) back in May of 2006, and linked here for your convenience if you care to read it.
