CR Podcasts – Lost

Back when we restarted our CR, these podcasts were very helpful to us. They are not online anymore, but the material is still good. No copy rite infringement intended by posting these.

I have no idea what the original order was, so take your chances.

CR Log Book

Is your CR Group keeping a logbook? We have been keeping one for a while. The pages were done by a member that is no longer involved. I decided to redo the sheet and add a section for the music that we do each week.

Most is self explanatory. I will print up a year at a time with the dates pre-printed. (You can download 2 years out for your day of the week below.)

M W C V = Men, Women, Children, Volunteers (we don’t have CS or TL, but have child care and the V is for those people.)

We make two people (unrelated) count and initial the offering count which goes in an envelope and up to the church office to the secretary to deal with the next day.

The Intro is what we play *before* we officially start. We do three songs after the announcements and one after the lesson/testimony. (usually)

C.O. Initials are for people that are court ordered. If we sign your log, you sign ours. That way they are put on notice that we have a record and won’t be tempted to initial their own log. We though this would be a good accountability step. No intentions of ever needing that, but I think it is good to do.

Download your day of the week:
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
Saturday
Sunday

If you see any errors, please notify me, and I will fix them. If you want a custom log sheet, I can change this around to suit your group.

Windows 8 Testing

Our Saturday service at church sets up in a temporary location and has an old laptop with MediaShout on it and we are getting ready to upgrade the computer and to start using PP5. Mac is not in the budget, so going to get a new PC, probably Lenovo. Most of these computers ship with Win8 and since I hadn’t even really read about it, I decided that I needed to do some testing. I was not brave enough to install Windows 8 with the new “Metro” interface on a work PC or the church’s current laptop, so I decided to do a risk free virtual install on VMWare Fusion on my Mac.

I downloaded the install and created the thumbdrive media install.

I use VMWare Fusion on my Macbook Pro, so made a copy of my Win7 Virtual OS and did a Win7->Win8 upgrade on the copy. Install went pretty quick.

Surprise, Win8 ran MUCH faster under VMWare Fusion 4 than Win7 did. VMWare 4.0 does not even officially support Lion, or Win8. After the 7-8 upgrade on my virtual install, I upgraded VMWare Fusion to 5. It runs really fast. Probably 3 times as fast as Windows 7 under VMWare Fusion 4.0.

Back when I went from XP to Win7 as a virtual OS on my Mac, it was so slow that I rarely used it. Only used it to access my Map program which isn’t available on the Mac. Win7 was so slow that it was unusable as a virtual OS. Win8 runs fast enough to leave it open all the time. It seems to very smoothly share resources between the OS’s.

It also seems that the upgrade kept all my installed programs intact.

Now the bad news. Win8 Metro interface is confusing and silly. It keeps switching back and forth to an almost Win7 desktop to the Win8 Metro Tablet interface. Don’t understand what Microsoft was thinking?? The switch between the two seems visually jarring.

I downloaded a program called Classic Shell
http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/

It pretty much lets you set everything back to the way it should be.

I think this will be what I do with the church computer.

12-Steps Ohio Sunrise

It has been pointed out to me that the “I Statements” version is not part of the DNA. Here is the original version. This version has the drop shadow darkened so that the letters stand out better on the lighter parts of the background.

Resources uploaded are: Images, Powerpoint with embedded images, KeyNote, Photoshop files with layer comps, and a ProPresenter 4 package.

Serenity Prayer – Caribbean Orange Sunset

Here is a photo taken by my friend Lynn Modranski. Seemed a good choice to make into a Serenity Prayer presentation. I will upload images, powerpoint with embedded images, and a ProPresenter 4 package.

The first upload of this presentation had a slide missing, so if you downloaded this from the last post, get your new one here.
