Media and its Effects on Worship

Have you ever wondered how Media, and electronic media is affecting the worship life of the Church?  Dr. T. David Gordon has spent years researching how various media forms through history affect the way people worship.  You can listen to his lectures here.  I listened to all 4 and they are some of the best lectures I have heard on the topic.  Be prepared, the lectures are long and while his views may be considered extreme by some folks, I believe he raises some very good points to consider and cautions to be aware of.  My personal favorite is the 3rd lecture on how media has affected the sacraments, prayer life and hymnody of the church.
