Inspiring creativity in church

Inspiring creativity in church
I've been helping out as a Communications Consultant at DUMC for the last four months and it's been eye-opening to see how much creative opportunity there is.

I can imagine it's not the most exciting of environments to work in. Understanding how the younger generation works, and what makes them excited, I put forward a suggestion to organise a monthly evening for creativity to be unleashed.

Within a day, I discovered it's tough to make the transition if…

Apple releases Final Cut Pro X
Finally, after whetting our appetites for long enough, Apple releases Final Cut Pro X, a revolutionary software tool that will change the face of video editing, but only on Macs. There was much speculation about when it'd be released, knowing that Apple normally runs press releases on Tuesdays, and since they promised it to be in June, it was highly…
