It's an interesting group, and usually some good discussion..
 
+Our latest Theotek Podcast. We talked about using Open Source software and services in church. We also got a great tip from +LaRosa Johnson on using +Evernote for your Sermon Illustration Database management. +Wes Allen shared Pixelmator as a recommendation on the iPad for photo editing on the go. +Antoine RJ Wright gave us some great opens source recommendations.

Give us a watch and subscribe to this channel to get updates on our new podcast which comes out each Friday after we record it live using Google Hangouts.

Sorry, that's another Tim. Heh.

I don't know if I want to go back and hear the Android discussion...

First thoughts on the Apple Event. The presentation was remarkably flat... still polished and well-orchestrated, but it felt like something got removed and people were adjusting on the fly. I saw nothing which spoke to the "It's been way too long" tag-line for the event. Unless I just missed it.

The products, on the other hand, look simply amazing. I've already requested a retina iMac for my video studio (I might as well go for broke).

On the negative side of things, the iPod touch is now unofficially orphaned (hardly unexpected), and where on earth is the AppleTV hardware update?

The Mac mini was introduced almost like an after thought... It really felt like something had the plug pulled late...

This is how my mind sees GANDALF when reading the book. 👍

Eldest signs Father's Day card, "your little Elven Lord." It should have been, strictly speaking, "lady" but this still gives me great hope for her future.

Been working on a church DB in filemaker for about a year (I'm only getting to it as (a) I learn new tools and (b) have time). With Central's transition to a new structure it's a really good time to put this into use, and today I've put in some touches which make it a bit more useful - like being able to send an email to ministry circles from the DB.

Well, last night Accordance 11 was released. This morning we have Rick Mansfield from OakTree Software (makers of Accordance) tout it's new features! It was a lot of fun!

I guess it's time for Logos and BibleWorks get an invite (+LaRosa Johnson , a podcast regular, works at Olive Tree so they are kind of covered).

LaRosa, I'd be happy to talk about some of the stuff I worked on for Logos 6, like Ancient Literature, Textual Variants, Deuterocanon/Apocrypha clause search. And other stuff. I'm probably not the guy for a general demo, though.

I'm a Painfully Hopeful Geek-Pastor
Introduction
I’m a pastor, and a geek, and I honestly don’t know why I keep putting myself “out there” for people to see.  Actually, I’m rather introverted in my natural state.  So, while pushing the envelope and leading is kind of compulsive for me -it’s also out character.  If anyone wants to write a paper on my particular form of insanity please let me know (I could use the royalties).  Really, I’m just “painfully hopeful.”  I hope that I can be a decent pastor, geek, father, and husband.  It’s just sometimes I’m painfully aware that I’m not quite all that I want to be.  This is OK, however, because I have hope that maybe one day – I will.  “Painfully Hopeful” is my story.
