The motions

Today was a long day. I got here early, and began prepping for our board meeting. I needed to present the database search so far to them, and get approval to move forward with whichever vendor I chose. Needless to say, although I had the service up "on the feed" on my desktop, I really didn't hear anything.

After a long board meeting (database acquisition approved, yay!) I was exhausted, and the easiest thing to do was just to go home.

Instead, I decided that I really needed worship more than anything, so I went to our seven community.

I really, really needed that. At one point Matt, the worship leader, talked about the origins of "O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing" and how John Wesley was really just going through the motions of "doing church" for so long. I think that was a bit how I was feeling, that I was "doing church" lately but not truly engaging with God. Tonight was a good time to engage with God, to interact with Him, and to worship Him.

I feel recharged.

Time to go home now. I'm recharged, but also hungry :-)

I found your blog in a search for church management systems. I'm impressed with the thoroughness of your research.

Which company did you decide to use and why?

We currently use FellowshipOne but are at the point of seeing if we can continue to afford it.
