Drone maker DJI has introduced a new 4k Osmo handheld video camera that you need to see. This could be used for church videos and home videos, and it’s under $700.  I’m really impressed with this. Check out the video and see why.

I’m already sick of the constant bickering by political candidates. We have a desperate need for strong leadership in our world today. So what does that type of leadership look like?

This is a great solution for any church wanting to share their available small groups on their WordPress-based website.  At Cornerstone, we use ChurchTeams to do this, but Churchteams is a full-blown church management system. GroupsEngine is much cheaper, costing a

  There are several free stock photo sites available now, but I’ve always had trouble keeping track of all the different sites. I ran across the Zoommy app for Windows and Mac computers, and it is a great bargain at $3.99.  It lets you search and sort through hundreds of photos that are available for free use. If you need photos

Whatever political viewpoint you hold, I urge you to watch this video. This is from an older Matt Chandler sermon, but it has been shared widely the last few weeks. He shares a powerful argument against the epic tragedy of abortion. With the Planned Parenthood videos being talked about on the media, I think it is helpful for us to look at the
