Works for me...Sunday version

Hey all, this is Jason...haven't posted on here for awhile so I thought I'd add a little something of my own flavor that isn't about cloth diapers, or baby poop, or baby things.

With all this driving I've had to do over the last few months I've found myself with a lot of time on my hands to think and reflect and to pray. I've also found this time to be the perfect time to listen to podcasts of some really awesome messages that encourage and challenge me as a Christian.

Since a lot of you readers probably have some sort of computer sense, I would recommend using the many great devices that are out there that can help you with your walk with God.

A lot of churches these days post their sermons online as mp3s or podcasts and are great ways to listen to sermons you may have missed, or would want to hear again. You also can listen to other great authors, pastors, and worship music from all over the world. itunes is a free download to your computer, so even if you don't have an ipod, you can listen to podcasts from your computer.

Another cool thing I've found is a website called "YouVersion" which is basically an online Bible that allows you to read and tag verses and journalize about how God has spoken to you. You can even share video, comments and more with other people.

There are also numerous devotional websites that allow you to have daily devotionals sent to your homepage everymorning for quick reminders of God's Word.

A couple of podcasts that I've been listening to lately that have really challenged me are:

The Village, Matt Chandler (my favorite)
Life, Craig Groeschel
The Mill, Aaron Stern

So, technology isn't all that bad...and can be used for good!

Google Alerts got em to your blog.

I've been podcasting Matt Chandler for about 5 months and vodcasting Mark Driscoll for a little longer.

It was through Mars Hill and Resurgence that I found Chandler and he is awesome.

Do you have the Chandler videos from The Resurgence Conference? They are excellent as was his 2006 "Gravity' Resurgence message.
