Just want to say how much i appreciate this thread. I'm a United Methodist pastor and though I haven't preached from my Playbook, I do use it extensively in preparing my messages. I use Word-to-go to write the sermon. I use Biblia.com to access my Logos reference materials, as well as Biblegateway.com for different versions of the Bible. I also use the internet for research and illustrations. I love being able to have all of these programs running at the same time and swiping back and forth quickly between them, even cutting and pasting references and Scriptures into my sermon. This is something I could not do easily with my old iPad 2, which is why I passed that tablet along to my father. I do feel that the 7" screen size is a bit small at times, but then I love the portability more of the time. Let's keep employing this good technology for the gospel!

Multiple Uses At Church
I use my PB as a bible also and to take notes. Sometimes use biblegateay.com, sometimes a bible off of the Amazon Cloud Reader. I am also a musician and often use my PB on stage to reference music charts and notes with what we are playing for service. Have used VoiceNotes, too. It also has been handy for organzing a scouting ministry. I have all the docs I need at hand.

I esp love the ipad users falling for the PB - I stand corrected from my earlier statement... except that you can project to an external screen pretty easy. But that requires AppleTV, right? I think I'll do the research today on the miniHDMI wifi solution. Us engineers are never satisfied. But the swiping between screens, PB wins hands down. Still need auto-correct, not giving up on that one.
With Pwrpt, Presenter's Edge could be all you need from the pulpit. Our sound techs simply advance the slides manually as pastor gets to them. But the PB is the wifi remote with Presenter's Edge, so pastor could advance them himself as if he had the clicker. That would be a no-frills solution.
Should we be sending a note to RIM - forget the "professional" label, and go with "ministry" on the next PB marketing blitz?

Here is a thread from way back when when we talked about our BBs being ministry tools. Most folks were aghast at the thought of using a BB at church .
Now it is commonplace.
Even in my groups, the kids are whipping out Bible programs on their smartphones. Technology use in church is my FAVORITE talking point.

Also what works well is using a sketch app, allowing us to us the PB as a white board, drawing or writing on loaded docs or photos and showing it through Slide Show. We use this at work to draw on loaded schematics.
The first day I did it, a guy asked me if it was a new iPad. So I showed him what it really was. Afterwards I gave him 5 presentations to complete in 3 days for his transgressions. I met him on Christmas Eve and he shows me a 32 GB Playbook he bought of eBay.

BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 100 versions and 50 languages. while bridged to my 9810, others highly recommended the E-Mmanuel app on the PB since it saves translations to the local memory (Buy e-Mmanuel Bible Reader - Download e-Mmanuel Bible Reader - Buy Apps from BlackBerry App World), another recommended Biblica | Home on the web.
I don't necessarily recommend Bibles as e-books since you cannot interact with the content. Meaning no cut -n- pasting, highlighting, etc. I use Biblegateway frequently to cut -n- paste into lessons, sermon notes, flyers, etc. E-Mmanuel does this also.
