I Wrote An Action For Launch Center Pro

I wrote a Launch Center Pro action for Quotebook. You can find it here.

Quotebook is an app that lets you collect, organize and easily share quotes that are special to you. It's a good looking app that serves a very specific purpose…my favorite kind of app.

Launch Center Pro is a powerhouse app. It allows me to do my most common actions in a fraction of the time. You should check it out, it's completely changed how I use my iOS devices.

This action is great example of what LCP allows you to do. Open LCP, tap an icon, enter the pertinent info, hit launch and your quote in Quotebook is finished in just a few seconds. If you can add your quote to the clipboard from a different app, you'll save even more time.

I'd love to know what you think about the action. How can it be improved? Do you find it useful?

A Few Thoughts From/On Today’s Sermon

Jude 1.24-25

[24]Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, [25]to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

Matthew 7.24-27

[24]“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. [25]And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. [26]And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. [27]And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

The Gospel = we are presented before God as blameless, without fault and with joy.

Stand firm in the storm. Our present circumstances, good or bad, do not dictate God’s presence. He is present always: Our anchor in the storm, our solid rock, our firm foundation.

Revelation 5.13

[13]And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

All glory, praise, honor, authority, power, and worship is due to God. No one and nothing else comes within a comparable scope. He is the saving God, the one true God, our creator and sustainer.

Finished A Good Book

Today I finished Teaching The Faith, Forming The Faithful by Gary Parrett and Steve Kang. It’s a solid book full of both practical and philosophical insight into educating the Church.

As someone who wants to be an educator in the Church this book was well worth the time it took to get through all 435 densely packed pages. I recommend it to anyone who is responsible for discipleship, education or small group ministry in the Church.

A Few Questions About Mankind

Why is man so self-assured and yet at the same time so insecure?

Why do we feel the need to prove ourselves better than others? To seek after power at great cost?

Is it possible that satan uses the fact that we are made in God’s image against us? He is, after all, very skilled at perverting what God has made for good and turning it into evil.
