    I am a tech newbie. Trying hard as a newly called Director of a Learning Center (3K,4K,5K) to serve young families in the tech generation while I am from the more mature generation.
    I have been trying hard to encourage my congo to make better use of their Web Site, feeling that it would serve us (me) well.I will give them the “heads up” about RSS Feed.If I understand what I just heard, it would give us info to put in it ( Our Website)as well as our own Web Master’s local input.
    Thanks for a good listen! Linda(Wendt)Travis

    Sallie and Martin – The explanation of what we can use legally from NIV was really great. As I listen, I wonder about the allowed posting period for sermon videos we have on the Net. I think we’re ok keeping to short clippets of readings used as the topic matter for a sermon, but you have to wonder about study guides for online Bible Class and other things. I’m sure I won’t remember the details. Could you post somewhere the guidelines that Zondervan provided? (Perhaps on the WELStech Wiki?) Thanks for answering this question!….and congrats on your 1year anniversary!
