Assorted projects

I’m testing out a few new technologies and workflows to see what might be useful to congregations, Unitarian Universalist or not (but skewing to small churches.) Here are a few — no particular order:

  1. Developing a (emergency?) “church office on a stick” — a resource with essential information for ministers, to be kept on a flash drive, or more realistically, on an MP3 player or in a digital camera.
  2. Developing a easy-to-implement small church website (plus documentation) using QwikiWeb.
  3. Learning 2.0’s Base (database program) to make orders of service and church calendars.
  4. Rating the top open-source applications for Windows of use of church offices and ministers.

  1. I was wondering for slightly bigger congregations if a real simple Asterix based OSS phone system would be a great resource. Website CMS would also be useful, though my small congregation (in a rented hall) could probably most use RE and worship resources.
