Tag Archives: Your Church

First of all, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted something here. I don’t know to whom I’m apologizing, since I don’t know why anyone would continue to check this site when I never update it…but I’ll work on that.

Anyway, yesterday Your Church magazine posted an article I wrote for them a few months ago, “Weighing Fair-Trade Coffee.”

It was an interesting article to write, because I learned a lot about where coffee comes from, how it gets from “bean to cup” (to steal a phrase from Michael Trent, one of the people I interviewed for the piece), and how some organizations use fair-trade coffee to assist communities where their coffee is grown (like Land of a Thousand Hills does in Rwanda).

It was interesting stuff. Maybe you won’t think so, but I do. So there.

Anyway, if you’re interested, check it out.

Hopefully there will be more here soon. Although I admit, much of my blogging attention is being consumed by my Lost blog (if you’re a Lost fan and you haven’t been there yet, come on over and share some thoughts:

With less than a month until the series finale, I should find myself with more time to devote to this blog soon.

Seating ArticleAnother one of my articles was recently posted online.

Now, I know I promised, after my article about data storage (which came shortly after my article on wireless mic restrictions), that my newer articles would be more interesting. And well, I’m not sure anyone will believe I’ve followed through on that promise with this newest article:

Seats With Substance” printed in the most recent issue of Your Church.

The article is an overview of flexible seating options (i.e. chairs) for churches. So no, it’s not going to win me a Pulitzer or the Nobel Prize for Literature, but hopefully it will be helpful for some church community out there.

And it’s one of the many articles for which I’ve recently interviewed people, and from which I’ve learned a lot—and gotten paid. So I’m not complaining. I’m going to compile a blog post sometime soon highlighting the things I’ve learned about the art of interviewing people. And if that also bores you, then let me say two things:

1) Maybe you shouldn’t be checking my blog. 🙂

2) More interesting articles are coming. I promise… (well, and some more boring ones, too)
