Drones and fishers of men...

Error message

A missionary from Asia writes that just prior to the Chinese new year he and his family were walking the beach on a sunny day. They started a conversation with a fisherman who told them "he used a drone to fly 500 meters of fishing line with bait and hooks out into the ocean surf." If the pic to the right is to be believed, Doug Wilson is already immersed in the hobby. With fish.

Got me thinking about fishers of men. Should we use drones here to take great preachers overseas or drones overseas to bring nationals to our great preachers? One thing's for sure: like video venues, drones are going to revolutionize modern-day evangelism. Who's ready to fly the drone that plucks John Piper from the bedraggled Twin Cities and puts him down where he can really do something among one billion souls in China? It's simply a question of stewardship.
