Many people now have iPhones, iPod Touches, Blackberries, and WinMo Phones that support Life Church.tv’s Bible application. They released a new feature called “YouVersion live” last week. We used it in our student services and I’ve got great feedback. It’s totally free and doesn’t require anything to be projected on screen, etc. People just log in from their phones.

It allows you to host “live” events for sermons. Everyone in your audience can follow your sermon, take notes, email their notes, submit prayer requests, twitter, tithe, take a poll, and more from their phone while you’re preaching. They can even go to the website youversion.com and look at your sermon later. We had several people using the service last weekend.
Here is the website that we used to determine our Hebrew names for our recent Passage retreat. You can break them down for girls/guys/meanings, etc. They even show you how to write them in Hebrew.

I got this video from a fellow pastor’s blog that I read. It’s great and goes a long way to encouraging us to live as believers of Christ instead of believers in a religion. The man that communicated this love to Penn Jillette was transformed by his encounter with Jesus. Are we being transformed?
A buddy suggested that I take a look at a new revised product called “The Story.” It breaks down the Bible and reformats it to be a novel. My goal is to read through it at least twice this year. I’ve already read “Chapter 1” and it covered everything up to Abraham. Since it didn’t break it down into smaller chapters and verses, I was able to read it like I would any book. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes.
*Disclaimer: While the text comes straight from the TNIV, it doesn’t include every single story found in the Bible. I would suggest by the look of it though 95%+ has been included and in order.
