I don't know that church services would be an appropriate place to deal 
with those issues. I don't see a problem of offering classes in/through 
the church, or even seminars on the importance of computing and the 
software you choose. I would rate this in the same vein as basketball 
teams and golf tournaments. It could even be a conduit to bring in 
people who are unchurched, and concerned about these issues. I would 
recommend using a lot of these ideas when making technology decisions 
within the church. They are hard to push, since everyone has these tools 
at work, and they never think about the cost when it doesn't come out of 
their pocketbooks.
