Have you ever streamed an inspirational message live on your mobile device or desktop? How about making a donation to an organization using SMS? AT&T sponsored a survey conducted in collaboration with EBONY Magazine to explore how the Magazine’s readers are now using mobile and internet technology to connect with their faith. Gone are the days that you turn off your device when you enter a place of worship.
