Amazing use for AI - had a client send me an image with lots of text I had to replicate. Instead of typing it out, I just asked Claude to do it for me! Took all of 5 seconds and the transcription was flawless!

What is the message the Apostles received and passed on?

God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.

1 John 1:5

Just released: I’m fine.

Back to my alternative roots.

We were so grateful for the opportunity to do a re-design (from the ground up!) for Restoration Community Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona!

This church is doing amazing work in the community.

Listen to what Pastors Reggie & Annie have to say:

“Our primary focus is on restoration – the wellbeing and healing of individuals and families in mind, body, soul, and spirit.

We believe that through the transformative power of Christ’s love, manifested in our fervent prayer, Spirit-filled worship, and sound biblical teaching, lives will be renewed and made whole again.”

Beautiful!

Not only did we handle the design, but we gladly took care of the hosting, domain, and all technical details so the pastoral staff and volunteers can do what they do best!!

AI/spiritual being

Thinking about the ethics of disclosing how I use AI in various capacities, both in design and for the church. AI has become a regular conversation partner for me and a tool I use often to manipulate/format text, come up with ideas, and get feedback on drafts. I also use it to generate summaries of material I create (like sermons) that I edit for YouTube descriptions, etc.

🕊 A blessed Pentecost to all! 🔥

Now using a slightly customized version of the excellent Tiny Theme.

LAUNCHED: Rising Sun Coaching and Consulting

Beth was an amazing client and doing amazing, positive work in the world!

Priest thinking about web design

I feel blessed to be in the place that I’m in: both fulfilling my priestly calling, and working to build a web design business that provides for my family and makes a positive contribution to the world.

Why I started a web design business

St. George is the patron saint of Ethiopia. A fitting drink for tonight’s Ethiopian feast at Abyssinia.

Really enjoy my ESV Reader’s Bible, but can confirm the beautiful cloth over board cover definitely attracts dog hair 🤦‍♂️😂

Don’t have a lot of CDs but here’s a stack of a few I have left I’ll be taking out to the car

So grateful

Let us bless the Lord. He has done great things.

As we approach Palm Sunday and Holy Week, I am so grateful for the Lord’s kindness in drawing us deeper into the mystery of his redeeming love through the Scriptures, services and observances, the prayers and praise.

In Holy Week, there is no denying sorrow and pain but there is a movement through them together as one people of God in his presence and thus, we proceed in certain hope toward the inevitable joy and revelation of union with him and one another.

Recently gave this podcast interview - Grateful for the opportunity to share about how God is working in the small things to bless Sunnyslope through Desert Mission Anglican Church, and DMAC through Sunnyslope. We love our neighborhood and see so much beauty there!

Currently reading: Loving Disagreement by Matt Mikalatos 📚

2 chapters in, and impressed with the depth candidness, and accessibility of this book!

Finished 2024: Dearly Beloved by Vermon Pierre 📚

Excellent overview and exploration of how the Bible uses the metaphor of marriage to communicate God’s love and the love the church shares with one another.
