I started this resource site in 2008 to collect various articles, resources and ideas that I've written or spoken about over the years, and I continue to post new ideas and resources. For more info about me and this blog, scroll down this page. I recently moved my Bible Video recommendations to this site as well. <>< Neil

The purpose of this site and blog:

I'm a Presbyterian minister who has been serving in Christian education for many years. Most people know me from my work with software for Christian education (www.sundaysoftware.com), and with the Workshop Rotation Model (www.rotation.org) for Sunday School.

I've seen the church from a unique perspective both as a volunteer and pastor, and as a conference speaker across the US and Canada. In addition to my software and CE work I'm also a "parish associate" for a local church. I've worked in large, medium and small churches, and experimented with many new ways of doing things.

As an "ordained software developer" I've become a go-to-techie for many friends and churches, thus, -much of the technical advice in this blog.

Along the way I "lost my ability to hide my incredulity" (!)  ...and I've come to realize this "loss" is both a gift and a curse.  When I see things that shouldn't be, or need to be -but aren't for some dumb reason, I tend to speak up, --but only if I'm also willing to work towards a solution.

Over the years I've found many who agree with my concerns and agree with my ideas and solutions, ...so I keep offering them. My blog continues that sharing.

I've been called an "expert" and "guru," but also a "contrarian," "iconoclast," and "loose cannon".  Hopefully you'll notice a theme in my posts: easy & workable solutions to obvious problems. I consider myself a realist, and believe in offering practical advice about things that are important. I also believe in recommending GREAT resources.

You can leave 'comments' after any post, and I invite you to do so.

What's with the OCEAN imagery?
I'm an avid diver and kayaker. The photos in various places in this blog are from St Croix, one of my favorite places in the world.
