I dislike the traditional Church tract.
I have never been a fan of handing out tracts, fake million dollar bills or funny little mind games as a statement of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In fact, these little papers, booklets, etc have made me less motivated to actually witness to strangers because the way that these tracts have been poorly thought out.
Would somebody really want to listen to you explain the gospel on a fake dollar bill?
The answer, more often than not is, “No” – they could care less!
However, I have recently discovered a new type of tract called The Story from Spread Truth Ministries. They have even developed an iOS app for iPhone that allows you to share the tract on your mobile device.
Very nice and innovative!
I came across a unique group of Flickr when browsing through my contacts photography.
The group is called Through The Glass. Just the name itself stood out to me. I love all kinds of photography, so it usually doesn’t take much to imprese me.
We’ve all heard that perspective is everything. This is just another perspective for some of these places.
Below are some of my favorites from the gallery.

Have you ever wondered where you can get high quality photography for your Church? Ever struggled in searching for good images, and all you come across is that cliché photography?
I know I have. However, that search is now over. I discovered a site called PhotoMission after ChurchMag held a photography contest, and I uploaded an entry that ended up being selected as the winner. Afterwards, the president of PhotoMission (who saw it) sent me a message about wanting to feature my photography on a site I was about to discover has real potential for the cause of Christ.
So I did some research on PhotoMission and its president, Connie Wragge. I then registered on the site to sell my images and became so involved in what I was reading that I wanted to learn more about it. I contacted Connie for an interview, and this was my first question:
Have you ever wanted to design a website without ever knowing one line of code? I know I have! Well, if that is you then you are in luck. I just came across a program called Muse, from Adobe. Here’s the program description:
Design and publish HTML websites without writing code
Create websites as easily as you create layouts for print. You can design and publish original HTML pages to the latest web standards without writing code. Now in beta, Muse makes it a snap to produce unique, professional websites.

Have you ever wanted an iPhone case that doubled as a wallet?
Have you ever coded lines of CSS and can’t figure out why a certain element isn’t looking or loading correctly?
I know I have.
I came across a wonderful resource the other day while doing some design work on my personal site. I was making a few CSS changes and needed to fix a few things that were a little “off.”
Enter Lint CSS.
It’s on the first row of the first page on my homescreen. It’s my go-to app when it comes to iPhotography. I’ve taken 95% of my iPhone photos using this application. If you don’t use Camera+, you are missing out on iPhotography greatness.
Today, Camera+ reached a huge milestone — 3 million sales!
This application is so wonderful, that 3 million people have downloaded it. Check out the infographic for details on Tap Tap Tap’s road to success:
I came across these interesting illustrations and knew this would be something I would want to share with the ChurchMag community. They are done by twistedfork or more commonly known as Dan Matutina.
According to Dan himself his style is:
… a mix of handmade & digital, clean & dirty, old & modern aesthetics. I love mixing colors with different textures & shapes to tell a story.
It comes with no surprise that iPads are the tablet of the future. We see a rise in use of them in schools all over the country.
After collaborating with Apple for a year, Ireland’s Wallace High School has launched the country’s largest 1:1 iPad initiative. The school’s principal, Deborah O’Hare, said in a press release that she and her staff had been letting students bring portable devices into the classroom.
