Many thanks to the Reverend Robin Ruder Celiz for sending in these photos of a collection plate with a QR code all ready for the Parish of All Saints', Ladner's re-opening for limited in-person worship, July 5.
QR codes were developed in Japan in 1994 in order to track various aspects of automobile manufacturing, however they had many other applications and by 2011, millions of people using mobile devices were using them to make purchases, donate money, etc. Your smartphone becomes the QR scanner which will take you to a standard URL like the donation and giving page of a church website as in this scenario.
Fr. Robin is happy to report that the QR scan works great and in the second photo we see Theeps Theeparajah demonstrating the ease and convenience of this technology.
