Mini-devotional - The Word of the Lord
The word of the Lord grows not only in cultures, but also in hearts. If you take the Word of God into your mind and heart, memorize it, and meditate on it, it will grow and be multiplied within you. The source of the truth of the Word of God rests in God himself and all who seek truth must, ultimately, seek God.
But, God cannot be found apart from Jesus -- who is the truth. Therefore, first seek Jesus. Then open your heart and mind and study the Word of God. Let it grow in you and be multiplied.
Tax Situation, need help
About three months ago I asked for help with my taxes. A gentleman contacted me and even drove down from northern Idaho to meet me and help me out. He said he'd take care of everything. Long story short, I haven't heard from him. I don't know what has happened and have not been able to get a hold of him. Therefore, I'm asking for help from anyone else who might be willing to do my taxes, both personal and CARM. Please contact me at [email protected] Thanks.
I have two cameras that I've been able to purchase because someone donated the money. This is, of course, for producing teaching videos. In concert with this, I've been doing a lot of research and I need to buy some lighting equipment $200-400, more memory for my computer $150 (to handle the large video files), and a video editing program, probably Adobe Premiere $840, ouch! Its the best one for a PC that will handle any future need.
The past couple of months have been very difficult financially, as often happens during the summer when people take vacations and donations drop. CARM just does not have the money to purchase all the equipment needed, at least not yet. So, if anyone is interested in sponsoring these products, please contact me at [email protected] Thanks.
One more thing. I've read a lot of reviews of different video editing programs. It's difficult to know what is better without hands on experience. Is there anyone out there who knows what is best? I don't want to spend any more than I have to. I need something that can combine two different video streams, graphic overlays, fades, green/blue screen, etc. I'm am open to suggestions. Btw, I have a 3.0 gz system, 800 FSB, 1 gig of ram, 256 video with two 19" flat panels.
By way of reminder, if any of you are interested in perhaps one of the very best, if not the best, Bible programs available, please check out http://www.logos.com/carm. I use it all the time. If you purchase software through the CARM link, you can get a discount and it helps to support CARM as well.
If you get anything at Logos, use CARM as the coupon code during checkout.
Remember, we have three online schools (theology, apologetics, and critical thinking), with which you can support CARM. If you sign up for them, to be helping us out a great deal. We also accept any donations.
