The title says it all. GoPro and Hot Wheels have teamed up to make a Hot Wheels car that will hold a GoPro Sessions camera and record in first-person. I definitely could have used this for when I did a vlog with my boys creating a Hot Wheels track. I’ve been wanting to get a GoPro for a while and this reminds me too much of an IRL Roller Coaster Tycoon setup. So I’m probably going to be a new owner of a GoPro soon!

One of my most favorite things on the internet this week was the IHOP social media frenzy about changing their name to IHOB.
Don’t worry — it’s only for the Summer.
But the social media storm of waring fast-food restaurants was amazing — with the prize going to Wendys IMO.
Enjoy the links, enjoy the snacks, how was your week?
[“ChurchMag TBT” is a ‘Throw Back Thursday’ on all things ChurchMag. Inspired by an upcoming ChurchMag podcast episode, we are looking back at personal — and public — throwbacks of ChurchMag.]
My very first article on ChurchMag is titled Facebook Timeline: How This Will Impact Ministry. Ah… looking at this article, I notice so many different things.
First off, I actually wrote the article nearly 7 years ago. If you look at all of my articles on ChuchMag, you will find older ones from when I wrote for a separate blog called seventy8Productions which was inspired by ChurchMag and then acquired by ChurchMag. The actual first article from that is titled FREE STUFF : Pattern Motion Backgrounds.
Man, the nostalgia train is heavy for me on this article.
[“Church Without…” is a series of think-pieces designed to slowly deconstruct what we think is essential to having church and to call attention to the hidden barriers we’ve erected between ourselves and the Great Commission.]
The scarcest resource in most churches isn’t material: it’s human.
Sure, every church thinks it needs more money, more tech, more things, but really, they mostly need more servants.
Jesus didn’t encourage the disciples to pray for a bigger budget in order to accomplish the harvest. He told them to ask God for more workers to enter the field. (Matthew 9:38; Luke 10:2)
Email subject lines are ridiculously important, like stupidly so. They not only have a massive impact on the open rate of your email, but also make readers more or less likely to click on links within the email itself. They frame people’s entire perspective and so the difference between a good and great email subject line is huge.

Last month, we introduced the idea of starting a ChurchMag Book Club and with a lot of support, we are going to move forward with it!
I put a poll up in our ChurchMag Facebook group on if we did the book club, which book would people want to do first and I think we had a runaway winner:
