I can still remember the day when Poland FINALLY got Apple Pay. I was surprised that we were so late as we had a robust contactless payment infrastructure. Before Apple Pay was announced there were other solutions around including Google Pay/wallet. I initially intended to use it as a backup plan to my usual payment systems but I soon found myself using it for everything. So I thought it would be useful to consider the advantages and disadvantages of digital payments from a giver’s perspective.
It’s not easy when you are subscribed to Spotify but your best friend is on Apple Music and the leader of your worship team is on YouTube Music. You may think you are talking about the same version of the song only to discover you’ve been practicing the wrong parts. Or worse still, one person in the group can’t even find that song. What do you do share songs across music streaming services?
Do you track your Bible reading? Have you considered using Notion to track your Bible reading? Well that’s exactly what Theology Nights has set about doing in 2020. I know that other ChurchMag writers like Jesse and Blessing are big fans of Notion so I was interested to learn more about Notion and how I might like to use it for my own Bible reading tracking.
Sermons can be a great source of inspiration. But if you have a poor memory, like I do, it’s easy to forget the information and application. For a long time I took basic notes, which was fine, but I wanted to do better. Which lead me to discovering the best way to take notes during a sermon: Sketchnoting.
My church is bi-lingual. We have a lot of English speakers but also Polish speakers since we’re in Kraków, Poland. Because of that, we have to do some clever things both in the service and online to suit both groups. This means making our church website flexible for different audiences is critical. I hope in sharing our use case you might get inspiration or ideas for your own.
