it’s virtual potluck friday!

Last Friday we started a something new and this week we are pushing it one step closer to becoming a tradition. It’s the day of the week where all you Digital Scribes can share your favorite tips, tools, and other websites you enjoy online.

Please be sure  to include a 3 – 5 sentence ‘review’ about why you love what you bring. (Our version of the 3×5 recipe card)  We’ll get all the good stuff stored in our resource center, just in case anybody is late to the feast.  We’ll keep it right there waiting for you in case you ever want to reference it again.

Now remember your dish –  or what you’re dishing –  doesn’t have to come from a faith based source – God is the God of all things. All things were created to reflect His glory! (some just don’t realize it, yet.)

Here’s the main course we’re serving up for you today:

Review: Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church, writes the kind of  blog you want flowing to your daily RSS feeder.  His posts are consistently wise, powerful, and inspiring. Stop here to oil your brain on things like culture, social media, faith, outreach, and the contemporary church. Get ready for his daily push and challenge to reach beyond the edges of your current faith.

Your turn – what are you bringing today?

    I’m bringing a place to rest and center for just a moment. Susan Etole offers up stunning photography and just a few words to help align our hearts. Her creativity never ceases to amaze me. Visit her at Just … A Moment and breathe in peace.

    Alright, I’m giving you one of my favs here-don’t forget where you got it. It may be useless to some but it is just fun and inspiring to me. If you want to create a cool tag cloud for your blog, your book, your essay, your poetry, you can cut and paste a few pages into this cloud generator and come up with a really cool tag cloud. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. You can use the generated image for blog art, print them out, share them with friends or just to be inspired. You could even type in your favorite psalm and get a tag cloud out of it and frame it to reflect God’s heart. Anyway, here you go….www.wordle.net….my contribution to the meal.

    Oh Toni – good one! I love clouds!

    So now you have inspired me and I am serving up another one, too. Aminoto (http://animito.com/projects). You can do free 30 second promo video or longer versions for almost nothing. It could save someone $100s of dollars. A friend showed me one she did for an event and it rocked! Fun for anyone wanting to get their light and creative ON.

    Sandy – one word here – Breathtaking.

    Oh dear. Bad Toni. I could eat way too much of this dish! Must. Stop. Now.

    One Twitter plug in I can’t do without is http://www.twuffer.com. Twuffer allows you to pre-post your tweets if you are going away for the weekend or want to time a reminder to your followers. It’s absolutely awesome! Don’t use it toooo much, you should try to always be present in your community real-time. But for ever-green scriptures and brand-strengthening posts, I use this site.

    Hi!
    New here today. I will serve up the blog that led me here and that’s http://www.marlataviano.com Marla talks about mom stuff, zoo stuff (she loves giraffes), Cambodia missions and lots of other day to day stuff. She shares her heart openly and on many days I’m sure you’ll find yourself seeing yourself in her posts or rejoicing in God’s greatness right along with her.

    Well, my first comment got eaten. So, I’m trying again.
    I’d like to offer up http://www.talkshoe.com. It’s a great place to host FREE conference calls, community gatherings, online classes, webinars, etc. all for free. The events can be public or private, you can choose to allow call-ins and or chat. It is very easy to catch on in terms of using. I love that the chat allows real-time interaction with people from all over the world which is great since international listeners often can’t afford the call in. Events are recorded and archived so those who cannot participate can catch them later. We’ve had some great times there!
