RE: Tools - Ministry
Internet & Computer resources Originated in April 2009
Today's "FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH" editorial
As of this date I have produced 42 of these "For What it is Worth - Ax to Grind" writings, or Editorials. My research shows that I have included the word "Tool" in exactly half, or 21, of such writings
We recently have some trees removed at our house and they did this so very very efficiently using contemporary "Tools." One of our sons is a wood worker/carpenter and he has recently helped us with such matters around the house. His "Tools" were a tremendous blessing in his effort. Let me ask you: "How would you like to go across the USA today like was done in the 1800s"?
With all of the 21st Century technology available today --- primarily via " The Internet and Computer Tools" --- my prayer is that our Christ-Centered Entities will make full use of applicable "Tools" in our stewardship and management of our finances. As detailed when you Go Here, let's leverage all of such resources to efficiently and appropriately get the job done.
I trust that the content of the following "Internet Links" are helpful as I continue to emphasize Internet and Computer System Ministry Finance "Tools" --- in these "For What it is Worth - Ax to Grind " writings. Please Go Here for an WebBOOK on the subject of a "Journey to be Christian Ministry Finance INTERNET FRIENDLY, etc".

Again, technology is only a "Tool". Just like any "Tool", it can be abused, mishandled, or neglected. Plus "Tools," of course, are meant to support meaningful work -- they are not the Ministry itself. Ministry facilities, vehicles, or even Computers, are not necessarily "Christ Centered" ministries any more than a drill is to the dentist. They�re all "Tools" to support the main task at hand: namely: "Connecting people with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and sharing with them the message of His love."
