Every church and team committed to its mission always looking to do better. This is not about vain endeavors. It is about appreciating the privilege of introducing people to faith and discipleship. It is always important to remember that tech and everything else is a means. No endeavor is without its challenges. To do better, more–innovation, there will always be barriers. Besides research in our closed corners we must remember that collaboration is key to fulfilling mission.

I know it’s not popular to be a fan of the iPad anymore (well maybe it’s a bit more popular with the new iPad Pros), but I still use my iPad a lot. I really love how it handles scrolling through photos and the way you manipulate images via moving your fingers across the screen.
However, for a long time there haven’t been any powerful pro tools to adapt your images.
Well now you can see Pro photographer Elia Locardi take a photo and edit it (in RAW) on his iPad.
Let’s watch the video:

“Past boldness is no assurance of future boldness. Boldness demands continual reliance on God’s spirit.”
We will be reading through Nehemiah 10:1-39
Promises are significant things to make and even more so to keep. Covenants are promises, deals, or agreements, but with the acknowledgement that both sides are keeping it regardless if the other is holding up his or her end. We see the covenant made with Noah that he and mankind did not maintain. The same was true for the covenant with Abraham and then with Moses. Now Nehemiah, Ezra, and others are saying they recognize these past shortcomings and promise that this time will be different. (We will see in the last chapter that it isn’t, but I’m getting ahead of myself.)
What does it mean to follow Romans 13, to submit to governing authorities, when those authorities have not submitted themselves to God? RC Sproul would like you to go right on submitting, up until those authorities come up against the law of God in what they require of you.
That’s not a very popular opinion today, as many Christians want to express their “freedom of speech” and ostensibly use it to ignore God’s requirement of submission. However, this is not how it should be.
With the addition of Instagram stories, there is more hype than ever for people to be on Instagram. Honestly, if your church is not on it, I don’t know if you are all in with your social media strategy. I’d make Instagram part of the top three, maybe even two, social networks your ministry needs to be on. With that in mind, I want to offer some statistics to help you make an informed decision on how to approach the platform if you so choose and how to best utilize it.
