(Warning. Not for little children and cry-baby adults.)
I am not usually a plugger of software on this site, but I have found Dropbox so useful I just had to mention it.
If you use more than one computer for the same work, or you simply need a backup space for essential work, then Dropbox does the job. It keeps up to 2GB worth of files sync’ed with a Dropbox folder on your computer.
Since I use a desktop at home and an old laptop for when I am on the road, it means I dont have to worry about moving files around since it is take care of automatically.
An added bonus for me is that if you click the following referral link, I get an extra 250MB space for free:
There is much to be applauded in the recent developments to encourage greater cooperation amongst Bible-believing, gospel-preaching churches, such as the development of regional gospel partnerships here in the UK (our local: MGP). Developments in the US, such as The Gospel Coalition and T4G, only serve to stimulate this movement further. A catholic spirit is vital in these days.
That said, there are are those with whom we feel a greater than average sense of oneness. My church is a confessional presbyterian church. We believe that that combination offers a much fuller expression of the gospel to the world than anything else (and if you are surprised by that, you need to listen to the lecture I mentioned a few days ago that David Roberson gave at Twin Lakes – link here.) Naturally, we feel affinity with other presbyterian churches in a way that we simply can’t with other beloved churches.
Yesterday was a long day, but it was a privilege for four of us EPCEW guys to meet with four men from the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Northern Ireland and talk about working together with a view to unity. It was a good meeting – plenty of will to move forward, and a little brotherly argy-bargy – culminating in a plan for the way forward which we will take to our presbytery next week.
One really interesting point: we see a real need to keep our eye on other developments elswhere in Europe. For one thing, the Scottish scene may change in the months to come after recent Church of Scotland Assembly decisions. For another, we recently welcomed a small but growing church in Sweden into our presbytery, and we know there are others in Europe interested in this kind of relationship. Watch this space.
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!
I have finally got the SPC website up and running – after a fashion. I had made the mistake after the last upgrade of the CMS of not archiving a complete copy. “Let that be a lesson to you!”, I hear in my head constantly as I do this. Always do backups.
The result is that, having re-installed the CMS and the template, I am slowly restoring the miscellaneous pictures and audio files to the right places. Give it a few days and we should be right as rain.
While trying to restore our church website (and not getting very far) I listened to David Robertson of St. Peter’s, Dundee, speaking at the Twin Lakes conference. Well worth listening to.
Some of you may have noticed that our church website has been missing for the last few days. That’s because it, and a vast number of other sites, have been hacked.
Hopefully we will be back up & running soon…
