  1. Three Videos Every Church Website Should Have

    Via Simon, three videos every church website should have. It just makes so much sense. Which one do you prefer, if you are trying to decide whether you want to visit a church, if you are new to the region? Pages after pages of text trying to explain who we are, theological brief, what we usually do during the week, etc. Or 3 quick 1 minute video showing:

    2. A glimpse inside a typical church service/bible study fellowship.
    3. One or two interviews of existing members on how their lives have been changed.

    And have them hosted on either YouTube, Google Video, or any web host of your choice.

    I know which one I would prefer.

    But I think I need to fix up our church website first. Quite a ruin there.

  5. Google Video Downloader Bookmarklet 0.1

    I love Google Video Search -- great way to waste your evening and plenty of bandwidth. However, I hate to watch video on a Flash player embeded inside a web browser window. I also hate to download the same video again and again every time I want to watch it. So …
