Considered setting up a Mastodon instance tonight for the community but got 2 mins into the docs and lost interest very quickly. I haven’t done much system admin work in recent years and it would be good to brush up on my skills, but I also don’t want to set something up that’ll become a burden.

Just followed a bunch of new folks who introduced themselves in past 24 hours. I still can’t find a single person I know on here!

I don’t recall ever having sung the hymn “Secret Prayer” at church, but I really like this version of it:

Reading “George Muller of Bristol and His Witness to a Prayer Hearing God” by A. T. Pierson has made me reflect on how wasteful I’ve been with my money. This book is a wonderful read if you get the oppirtunity.

It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find TV shows that you can watch as a family with small children, but we’ve been enjoying “All-Round Champion” and A “Week to Beat the World” (though the latter was filmed in 2019).

For a while now I’ve thought about building an open source / SaaS church site CMS thingy that would let small churches get an online presence (address, beliefs, service times / ministries, etc) without a lot of effort or cost. Do you folks think there’s a need for such a service / software?

New to @Mastodon — why does the iOS app not have a local/global view like the web app does?
