Microsoft Surface: Did I miss something?

Apparently Microsoft announced a new product called the surface recently. I was watching Hulu this weekend and saw a comercial for the Surface tablet and I did an immediate double-take. What? I’ll admit, I was immediately disappointed.

Why? Because more than 5 years ago, Microsoft announced a product they had developed called Surface. I wrote about it here. Below is a video.

Yes, the video above looks like the future, right? Apparently, they only made a handful of these tabletop computers which made their way to high end hotels and such. I never saw one personally. Instead, Microsoft launches a new product last week called the surface, and it didn’t look like the future.

Kid’s Church Worship: Easy as 1-2-3

I’m almost overwhelmed by the number of resources for kid’s ministry worship these days. Well, maybe it’s not overwhelming, but compared to where we were 10 years ago, the difference is night and day. Many kid’s church environments out there have live bands or utilize presentation software with all the bells and whistles. However, the majority don’t. The majority of kid’s church environments have a TV and a DVD player, so it’s up to volunteers and staff to figure out how to get quality worship on DVDs… and if they do, there’s still that awkward pausing and skipping from song to song to match the song order planned for that day.

This is why I love the newest product out from God’s Kids Worship. I’m a little behind getting the word out, but it’s not too late for you to take advantage of this amazing resource. It’s called Next Worship. It’s a year of worship on DVD format that makes worship simple for the small and large church alike.

Here’s what you get:

The Eric Trap Blog Tour: Day 10

Day ten, the end of the second week of the Orange Trap blog tour. It was a great week.

On this day, Jay Martin, Or jaymart as I know him wrote a great post about the book. He included a clip from the famous movie, “Spartacus.” I have to admit, I’ve never seen this movie, but he includes the clip of the famous part of the movie where multiple people stand and say, “I am Spartacus.” Jay described that when he read the book, he immediately identified with Eric Newman and after hearing so many other people declare “I am Eric Newman,” it made him think of this clip.

The Eric Trap Blog Tour: Day 8

Yesterday was a big day for The Eric Trap blog tour. We took four virtual stops and people had some great stuff to say! So, let’s get started.

The first stop is over at the Compel Blog, which is the kidmin encouragement/resource blog for the Church of God of Prophecy denomination. Jason Vernon, the blog’s author is the senior pastor at RTP Community Church (which I wrote about a few weeks ago). He’s a great guy and I’m so glad to get the perspective of a senior pastor for this book. What spoke to him most was the chapter on delegation. Craig Gyergyo who wrote that chapter did an incredible job approaching delegation in a very unique way. Many of us do a great job delegating tasks, but we don’t delegate authority, which is huge. This chapter alone is worth the price of the book. Read Jason’s review here.

The Eric Trap Blog Tour: Day 7

So, yesterday was a slower blog tour day with just one stop. There were two other initially planned stops, but we’re going to circle back around to those stops in a few days. However, I got a real kick out of the featured review for the day.

Tom Roepke, who says he is not Eric Newman, does indeed work for New Hope Community Church, the same church where Eric Newman works… except Tom is in Ohio I think and Eric’s New Hope is in Houston. Pretty funny though. Tom Created a video review to go with his post where he showed the infamous hallway with his altercation with Jim Swanson. Don’t know what I’m talking about… well, you need to read the book.

The Eric Trap Blog Tour: Day 6

It’s week two and the blog tour is at it again with three more stops, yesterday.

My friend Brain Dollar posted a great review on his blog. He shared with his readers the three reasons why he liked this book so much.

  1. It’s a leadership fable – who doesn’t like a leadership fable?
  2. Eric is easy to relate to – because he’s just like so many of us.
  3. The lessons are impacting – even those of us who have been dong this for a long time slip in these areas from time to time.

Brian is giving away a few copies, so if you want one, check out what you need to do to win.

Jeremy Echols also posted a review of The Eric Trap. My favorite part of his review is in his “Spoiler Alert” section.
