The Amish shun having their picture taken… modern celebrities are ever scheming for more camera time. Is there a lesson we can take away from this?
Check out my WWW article on Miley Cyrus, the Amish and what we can learn from this clash of cultures…
Dr. Phil— the popular television psychologist— recently found himself in the middle of a self made firestorm. He tweeted something that many found to be very offensive.
He quickly deleted the tweet, but it was too late. The firestorm had already begun.
Check out my WWW article for more on this unfortunate event, and a reminder from God’s Word that we would do well to remember…
This week I have the privilege of serving as a counselor at a Bible Camp… so I am not able to write my usual Why We Web Wednesday article. Instead I posted the a video of a counselor intentionally deploying an air bag in a field… upon detonation the air bag soars to a height of about 30 feet.
Detonating the air bag was meant to demonstrate the brevity and fragility of life. One moment everything seems fine as we are driving along… the next moment an accident can change everything. Are you ready for eternity?

In last week’s WWW post I briefly explored the popularity of social media and provided some “baby steps” to help church leaders who are not already familiar with social media get started. In the article I suggested starting with social media by getting to know the undisputed leader— Facebook.
In this week’s WWW post we explore a handful of other social media websites that are also be worthwhile experiencing. By gaining a basic understanding of the recommended sites you will then be in a position, as a leader, to begin thinking about social media as a tool for ministry.
Check it out…
Virtually all church leaders know that we are living in the age of the Internet and intuitively realize that social media brings with it great potential for furthering the cause of Christ.
Unfortunately many of those same leaders have not incorporated a coherent and consistent social media effort into the ministry of their local church.
Maybe this describes you or someone you know? If so check out my post this week on the Why We Web blog… it was written to help the absolute beginner!
In the beginning, just five years ago today, Apple introduced their mobile App Store to the world. Since then the use of smartphones and other internet connected mobile devices has taken the world by storm.
In the beginning God was there… when the app store first opened there were only 200 free apps available. One of the free apps was God’s Holy Word… specifically YouVersion’s Bible App for iOS.
