I got an invite to take part in the alpha testing of YouVersion. This is going to be a great resource for Christians to search and find web content related to Bible passages. Lifechurch.tv is sponsoring this web 2.0 application and my first impression is very good. I like it because it is an excellent website. Churches should be leading
I’ve been waiting for several years for US Cellular to offer a cool phone. They are always behind the other carriers, but we have no choice since we live in the sticks. They finally have the Motorola Q smartphone. I called and my plan is up in another month, so I can get a new phone. Now I just have
Since my blogging schedule is not very predictable, you might want to considering subscribing by email. The day after I enter a post, you will get an email with everything I wrote. It’s a good way to keep up with what I’m blogging about without having to visit the site. Just fill in the form below if you want to
We have been having on again/off again problems with our church website for a while. So our host is making some changes to hopefully solve our intermittent problems. The downside is that our website has been down for a couple of days. We are hoping that it will be back up and running very soon without the problems we have
I forgot to post about a significant event last month. It was my one year anniversary of blogging. 220 posts in a year. I guess that’s not too bad.

I even contacted a technical
I’ve been playing around with the social networking site facebook the last few days. It seems much cleaner and easier to use than myspace. It seems like a neat way to connect with some other pastors and some old friends. I must be getting old because there are very few people my age from my schools who are on facebook.
A few years ago, I read a book that was really a wakeup for me. It was Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald. I have always kept a pretty intense schedule, so this book made me realize the importance of staying organized. It made me think about how my “dis-organization” and mismanagement of time was hurting my relationship with
I’m suffering some serious gadget envy today since it is launch day for the iPhone. There are so many great reasons to live in the country, but technology isn’t one of them. We really only have one company around here that has decent cell service and that is U.S. Cellular. Unfortunately, they are still on the old CDMA network and
Jenni was wanting a way to hook her iPod up to our Honda minivan so I came up with the cheap and easy fix. We could have bought one of the adapters that plugs into the cd changer port on the back of the factory radio, but it’s a serious pain to pull out the radio and wire it up.
