    Interesting piece.

    I use Powerpoint occasionally in our mid-week teaching time and I find it helpful when others use it properly in their teaching.

    While I don’t want to sound like a ‘stuck-in-the-mud’, I wonder if the regular incorporation of a visual element into our church services takes away from the simple appreciation for the Word preached. We have become a very visual society and I would hate to get to the place where people need some kind of visual element in order to receive the Word.

    What do you think?

    The use of visual elements is good as more and more people are visual learners. My big problems with the use of slides etc come down to 2.
    1) A lot of people rely so much on them that a technical fault can halt or wreck a good sermon. That should never happen.
    2) A lot of people do not have the SKILLS required to put together a good presentation (eg/ put too many or too few words on a slide, simply have the slides be exactly that is said etc etc)

    I am looking for a church or churches in Melbourne, Australia that are using propresenter that might be able to advise my church as we make the transition from powerpoint. I’ve found the training videos sketchy, and the manual overwhelming but still with gaps.
    Can anyone help?
