A Word on Church Outreach Etiquette

Dont Be That Church - Image

Recently, my church held a large event for our town: a fireworks celebration. It didn’t go as planned. (You can hear more about it in episode sixty-one of the ChurchMag podcast and in this article about some of the lessons I learned from it.) We hold the event at the small, regional airport located in our town. On the opposite side of the fireworks, across a large field that runs along our town, is a set of pee-wee soccer fields and another church. This other church has an almost perfect view ...

Christian Business Ethics: Meet Steve Jobs [Discussion]

Dont Be That Steve

I am deeply haunted by Jesus' words as he has just begun his three year ministry, gained his disciples, and was talking with the local community. Mark 8:34-38 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet ... Continue Reading

Gender Equality In Tech and Gaming [Video]


I am blessed enough when I was running my church technology team that I had a diverse demographic within the church congregation. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely privileged white Americans, but I had stay-at-home moms, teens, college students, retirees, and working dads all on the groups with their own specialties. The fact that I had each person in a different psychosocial stage of life, genders, level of technology and church communication competence, and character backgrounds made our ... Continue Reading

The Dangers of Selfie Sticks [Video]

The Dangers of Selfie Sticks PSA - SCREEN

Pizza Hut decided to put on a great little promotional about how selfie-sticks are getting in the way of us being able to focus solely on you in the selfie. The video is below and is a fun little jab at the whole concept of a selfie stick. But then this happened. I continued cruising through YouTube videos and found a group of 4 people reenacting a car singalong utilizing previously said selfie-stick which ends badly. The selfie-stick may not have directly caused the accident, but the humor ... Continue Reading

When Cartoons Start the Faith Conversation

From the episode, "Dipper vs. Manliness" from Disney Channel Original Series "Gravity Falls."

During my childhood, Sonic the Hedgehog challenged me on the issue of where my confidence rested. During college, Timmy Turner of "The Fairly OddParents" showed me that not everything you wish and desire for your life is necessarily beneficial. During my late 20's, Dipper Pines of "Gravity Falls" challenged me on the topic of Manhood. And during my early 30's, Ed Elric of "Fullmetal Alchemist" showed me what happens when you try to play the role of God in certain areas of your life. Each ... Continue Reading

Organize Your Desk to Be Happier and Healthier [Infographic]

sticky notes desk with computer

There is not much to this infographic like I normally do, where I draw out key points and such. But as a blogger who values desktop space, I loved this. Over the years I have tried to do desktops in a variety of situations. What I know I like personally is post-it notes everywhere as reminders, my coffee cup, and whiteboard marker within arms reach, but little more. What does your desktop look like? ... Continue Reading
