Thanks, Honey Maid. This Sunday the church I'm part of will be celebrating Family Sunday. As part of our exploration time, we'll be talking about "what makes family family?" We'll be sharing the videos in your "Wholesome," stream as part of our celebration of family. All of them.

Solve for X is a place where the curious can go to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical...

Thinking of a service coming up and wanting to use the version of R. Kelly's "Gotham City" that was on the "Batman and Robin" soundtrack.

Do these lyrics speak to you of "and justice shall flow like waters...":

I'm lookin over the skyline of the city
How loud, quiet nights in the mist of crime
How next door to happiness lives sorrow
And signals of solution in the sky

Refrain:
A city of justice, a city of love
A city of peace, for everyone of us
We all need it, can't live without it
Gotham City, oh, yeah

How sleeping awake because of fear (ohh, yeah)
How children are drowning in their tears
How we need a place where we can go
A land where everyone will have a hero (even me)
Refrain

Yet in the middle of stormy weather
We won't stumble and we won't fall
I know a place that all of us shelter
Refrain

This. Is. People.
A group of construction workers, students and other bystanders turned into a ragtag team of first responders to save the life of a motorcyclist trapped underneath a burning car in Logan, Utah.

I'm having problems using g+, because I tend to use tweetdeck for my social media, and it doesn't have a g+ option.

But G+ DOES work with Hootsuite! (Pro accounts anyway). And Hootsuite is homegrown :)
