Nova Scotia church to bless BlackBerrys

From the Globe and Mail:

Rev. Lisa Vaughan wants to say a prayer for your BlackBerry.

Or maybe your laptop or any other communication gadget you use.

Rev. Vaughan plans to hold the decidedly contemporary blessing service this Sunday at St. Timothy’s Anglican Church in Hatchet Lake, outside Halifax.

“I think they traditionally used to call it Plough Monday, where people used to bring their farming equipment and tools to the church to be blessed,” said Rev. Vaughan.

“Most of us live with our cellphones and laptops and BlackBerrys and all that kind of stuff. I mean, those are just daily tools for us.”
