Twitter and RSS have been hoppin’ this morning. Some of you know ’cause I’ve been emailing links all morning. I’ve decided to consolidate. Here’s all the cool stuff I found out about this morning.

LifeWay Research is releasing a new book in April called Lost and Found: The Younger Unchurched and the Churches That Reach Them. You can download a sample here. It’s mostly statistics, but the authors weave a story through it too. You get two installments of the story, and now I’m tempted to buy the book in April just ’cause I want to know how the story ends.

Chris Forbes has put together about 30 pages in a short book called Facebook for Pastors. Pretty self-explainatory. It’s definitely geared more toward those who haven’t ever logged on to Facebook, but the beginning has some good stuff for church leaders who are already on Facebook (and it’s a good tool to encourage Facebook-shy pastors you know). You can download the whole thing right here.

Found this video on Gizmodo:


Beached from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.


It’s not minatures. It’s a real beach in Autralia. They explain (and give you another video) on the
blog. Pretty crazy.

And I couldn’t help but click on a headline via one of my Tweeple that reads, “Bank robber hires decoys on Craigslist.” You can get anything on the internet these days. I laughed in disbelief. Yes, he got away … which may have been even more amazing than the decoys. You have to read this.

Let me preface this next one with “I certainly don’t believe everything I read on the internet.” But if this is true … well, nothing. I’m not surprised and there’s nothing for me to do about it. What’s $400,000 in light of $700 billion, anyway? Pocket change.

So there. That’s been my morning. Back to your regularly scheduled programming …
