I first encountered Jim Carrey like many as the main character in Pet Detective, Liar Liar, Batman Forever etc. The last few years he seems to be focusing on painting as a form of expression. In this short documentary he expresses his relationship with art. Then, around the 4:15 mark speaks about painting Jesus. The simple, yet profound statements he makes are something to not only ponder but bring into our practice in church tech and creativity.

Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality app that has been hyped for a long time and it kind of came out of nowhere when it was released. I was worried it was never coming out and then. Many websites have been comparing Minecraft Earth to the successful augmented reality app of Pokemon Go and if you take the resource gathering as the only part of the game, sure, it’s like Pokemon Go.
I’ll be honest, that first paragraph I wrote when the app first came out. Everything from here on out is me having sat with the app, or better yet, not sat with the app since then. The voice above, super pumped about this game coming out. But there is a whole host of cons that come with this.
Have you ever seen something and then thought… “Wait! We can do that?” That’s exactly how I feel when I see Jason Mayfield’s videos when he customizes his Bibles, or as I like to call it Bible hacking.
I discovered Jason when I was trying to make heads and tails of all the different types of ESV Journaling Bibles (I’ve been looking for a Bible where I can easily add notes and highlights). Jason’s video helped explain the differences and then it took me down a long rabbit hole of his videos. Check out this video on how he prepared his Bibles for use.
Stain glass, hymns and other forms of art have not only been worship aids but media. For hundreds of years many people’s faith was enhanced through them. They were and, in some ways are still a part of people’s spirituality. Today, with developments in tech, it only makes sense that apps take the part of these mediums. Devotional apps have found space on the screens of many Christ followers. That’s why I thought we’d take a look at some Lectio Divina devotional apps.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A Snack Pack a week doesn’t keep the doctor away but I hope it makes your week better in some way.
