What is your churches motive behind their outreach? Is it to get more butts in the pews to write cheques, or is it to change the lives of your community? This week we look at the great commission in Matthew 28 and our motives in Matthew 25.
Feel free to discuss it in the comments!

I was playing around with a video editing app on my iPad last night and made this video for y’all. The song is “Remembrance” by Matt Maher and it was shot entirely on my iPad and iPhone and edited on my iPad using an app called vJay.. the audio was captured on my iPad just using the mic on my apple ear buds.. I just wanted to see what kind of video could be made using this app. It’s not actually intended for editing videos like this, its for live vjing, but I thought “why not set up a couple cameras, and use the video from them and make a video.
Over the last couple of days I’ve been in the middle of a conversation with a couple of people in the comments section of a post over on iPhoneinCanada.com. Its on a topic that I’m very passionate about; changing the attitude of cellphone companies. You see cellphone companies, in particular the “big 3″ that being Rogers, Bell and Telus, have a monopoly on the market, and they know it. People go to these companies, because they don’t know that companies like “Wind Mobile” exist, or because Wind is so new, they are afraid the company is a scam, or that it’s going to fail once they sign up.

The reason I’m going to the walk-in clinic is because we don’t have a doctor yet.. why you ask.. well because like every other province in Canada, PEI has a shortage of doctors, so the day we moved to PEI, we called the “number” and had our names put on “the list” and we will get called when there is a doctor who is accepting patients.
Here’s where my confusion is. I take a number of medications for my back. For those of you just tuning in, I have 7, yep, 7 herniated and 2 compressed disks in my back. I’ve been dealing with it now for about 5 years. Doctors aren’t sure why, I didn’t have a terrible accident or anything like that. They think it may be because between grade 9 and 10 I went from being the smallest kid in my class, to being the tallest kid in my class.. and now I’m medically considered to be a giant..and theres a chance that my spine didn’t grow as fast as the rest of me.

It’s no secret that I love Twitter.. I’ve been a member since February 25, 2008, and to date have sent 24,728 tweets, which if you do your math, works out to about 15 tweets a day since I started “tweeting”. If you’re wondering why I use Twitter, you can read about that here.
Twitter has many upsides, but it also has downsides. I want to write about those today. The main downside to Twitter is because it is such a short sentence, we don’t really think much about what we are writing, we just write it, and then life goes on, surely 140 characters can’t really have that big of an impact on anything right? I know that’s always been my attitude about Twitter. It was especially my attitude when I was living in Madoc, Ontario. It was a very small community, not very “with it” when it comes to technology. In fact, for a while I was the only person in our community on Twitter. Continue Reading…
