The average church technology volunteers puts in hours behind the scenes. Maintaining the church’s computers, network, video equipment, website, etc. all require specialized skills which unfortunately no one usually notices until something goes wrong.
As a child of the 80’s I got to enjoy riding a Big Wheel. I remember spending hours outside riding on the driveway. (Yes, we went outside to have fun back then.) For those of you that are to young to know what a Big Wheel is check out this link.
Community. In a world where we can easily avoid human interaction via technology, is it any wonder that true community is harder than ever to find? The church that my family and I currently attend is making a big push for life groups this fall and I’m praying that everyone who attends will make the decision to plug in. I’m really looking forward to reading this one when it becomes available.
A year ago today, I was spending my last day in Uganda. We had already went shopping for Ugandan made souvenirs at a local market and had spent a final few hours with the children at St. Mary Kevin’s Primary School. Leaving those children was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. They gripped my heart from the moment a small hand slipped into mine. They have so little by our material standards, but the faith and love that they showed me was far more than I had ever offered to anyone outside of my family. God broke my heart and soul during those two weeks.
Anyone that has ever worked for a medium to large company knows that procuring a computer and hardware accessories needed to do one’s job can be a real hassle (to say the least).
As a Christian, I always find these sorts of things interesting. Do I think God placed this here? Of course I do, but more importantly God shows himself to us on a daily basis. Just look around. He created it all.
Starting over (again). Its been nearly a year since I posted anything here. My last post was about how I was looking forward to seeing the Social Network movie. Since then I’ve basically been a slacker when it comes to posting anything.
