How to Use Evernote in Speaking and Preaching

I have been using Evernote for a couple of years now. I use it to manage meeting notes, store blogging ideas, and file interesting articles I read on the Web. It has basically become my electronic brain. However, unlike my aging brain, Evernote provides near-instant recall. Recently, I started using it to manage the raw components of my speeches.

We believe the image size change is for the upcoming Apple TV’s that will be released this fall.

Lessons from My Grandfather ( Farewell)

For the first third of my life I remember spending every Saturday night as his house bouncing on his knee. He taught me how to skin a rabbit, clean fish, and even got me to eat possum (one...

What is Church Branding?

Posted by on Sep 25, 2013 in Marketing | 0 comments

By Richard L Reising The origins of “branding” are simple. Shape a piece of iron, put it in a fire, and shove it onto the hide of your livestock. It is a byproduct of sweat, fire and pain, but it yields an indelible impression – a lasting mark that creates a sense of belonging and sets one apart.
