Quick note – I stopped maintaining the Redland Baptist Church, Rockvile MD website back in late 2004 when I moved about 350 some-odd miles south. I know, whatta wimp for not making the commute for God, but then there is that other side of the argument about good use of time, tithes and resources.
The current site reverted back to FrontPage (from MoveableType), though with much less cruft than is possible with said Microsoft tool. At some point in time, I will re-render what I had done – demonstrating the different approaches to search enabled sermon archives and dynamically data-driven church calendars (which both my work and the current work provide).
If and when I get the time that is …

Well its time for me to quit talking about it, and show you what I’ve done so far. Mostly because from a technical point of view, I’m almost done. Done that is with smithing the MovableType weblogging/personal publisher tool into content manglement system (CMS) for my church’s web site.
Now it is time to cut you guys (and gals) loose and give you an opportunity to yank the plank out of my eye. Yeah, I know, I’m getting beta testing on the cheap, but there is a madness to my method.
First of all, who better to convey to me any mistakes, omissions, oversights, grammatical gaffs, typos or what-have-you than a cool bunch of readers like you who have little or no idea of what my church is about and have very high technical expectations? Second, by leaving comments here, we all learn.
That and when you’re done, I can then begin in earnest with documenting what I’ve done for poor Chuck Holton, who helps me administer the site, and so you guys (and gals) can try and do the same.
Just note that this is still in a beta directory, so some ‘home’ links might throw you to the old site, and that there are no back-links to the home site via the new music and youth sites. Which between all this and fighting a recent case of food poisoning is the reason I haven’t gotten around to reviewing YOUR sites.
So what are you doing still reading this post? Go visit the test site for Redland Baptist Church of Rockville Maryland, and then come back here with your copious comments.
