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:
- 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.
- Developing a easy-to-implement small church website (plus documentation) using QwikiWeb.
- Learning OpenOffice.org 2.0’s Base (database program) to make orders of service and church calendars.
- Rating the top open-source applications for Windows of use of church offices and ministers.
