      Alexa responds to minister’s sermon, orders toilet paper

      Brookman preached about how easy it is in the 21st century for Christians to live separate lives — and to fail to see the need for the kind of unity Paul advocates.

      Even shopping has become depersonalized, Brookman said. Instead of going to Walmart and interacting with other humans, one need only say, “Alexa, order toilet paper.”

      From the master bathroom in her house, Bethany Becknell heard a polite female voice respond, “OK. I’ve added it to your cart.”

      The voice was that of her Amazon Echo speaker, which can play music and set alarms in response to voice commands. Oh, and order things from Amazon.com.
