Flash back to last Wednesday. I’m working on my workshop proposal for MinistryTECH and I think of a related blog conversation earlier this year. Jim Walton’s blog, Church Tech Matters, was at the heart of that conversation (posts, comments, and links to other blogs). So I go to Church Tech Matters to refresh myself on the conversation and I find nothing but an error message where Jim’s blog ought to be. No posts, no comments, no blog at all. Oh no! So I wait and keep hitting F5 on my browser hoping to see it all return so I can finish my little project. The error messages keep changing, which tells me that Jim must be aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Then I start seeing posts from Jim about what happened and what he and Mary are doing to restore everything. I feel bad for Jim, but mainly I just want the blog to be back! (How selfish is that?)
I couldn’t finish my workshop proposal for Terrell because Jim’s blog was down. Is this not a weird world in which we live? Thankfully, Jim and Mary have fully restored everything now so I can get back to my proposal and Terrell won’t have to wait much longer. Thanks Jim for your tireless efforts to restore it because Church Tech Matters really does matter!
