ReCAST Church

From the ❤️ With Emoji

There was a ? when I never used emojis. Then my oldest son saved up enough ? to get his own ☎️ And soon I was trying to figure out the meaning of all the little pictures.

I have now worked on a personal level to improve my use of emojis for the sake of my relationship with my son. I want to speak his language. But I was pretty amused to find the recent translation of the Emoji Bible.

It is a cute little thing, kinda like the Lego Bible my kids have enjoyed, which takes the Bible stories and uses Legos to produce the scenes. And at the end of the day, emojis only work when they become connected to routine words.

I have learned that you cannot stretch an emoji too far without some misunderstanding. Emojis cannot replace human verbal interaction, and yet I find them to be pretty ??!
