I've used Logos throughout my years of seminary and believe it is one of the best programs out there for Bible study and research. Logos is one of the most comprehensive and powerful software packages on the market - now having recently added a iPhone/iPod app.
Although this software is top drawer...it does come with a hefty price tag.
But during Christmas they are running a 25% discount code: DECKTHEHALLS
If you were thinking of purchasing Logos Bible Software, make sure to take advantage of this discount!

At The Business Insider, Alyson Shontell wrote about her unsuccessful job interview with Google, which has gained a reputation for asking hard and bizarre questions that test a candidate’s creativity, priorities, and critical thinking skills. She provided 15 examples from other people who’ve interviewed with Google:
How much should you charge to wash all the windows in Seattle?
Why are manhole covers round?
Design an evacuation plan for San Francisco.
You have eight balls all of the same size 7 of them weigh the same, and one of them weighs slightly more. How can you find the ball that is heavier by using a balance and only two weighings?You can read more questions and the preferred answers at the link.
Granted, I not sure that I would want to be on the receiving end of those most challenging questions - but what is cool about these Google interview questions, is that they challenge the person to critically think and be creative. Too often it is those skills that are most needed in a job - particularly in ministry.
I think posting infographics like this one, remind us all of the scope and impact these social networks have. The next issue is the question of how the church is going to effectively leverage and participate within them? Or will the church simply ignore them, hoping that they'll go away?

Pew Internet report, the median ages of some of the most popular social networks are:
Given that fact, how is your church using social media for ministry throughout the church (kids and adults alike)?
