Dr. Christian Smith and the Smoking Gun

If you care about outreach, this is an important report. If you care about reaching people with the love of Christ, you have to listen to what Dr. Smith has discovered.

This is the smoking gun. The way that we currently handle witnessing, training, and worship is all wrong. It is failing to do what it is supposed to. Supposedly, we are all about reaching people, but no one is getting the message.

We who are American Christians are failing our own children.

How did you embed that? I copy and paste the embed info new post box. It just gives me a message that says it can't embed tags with a href or something like that. We both use blogger so how did you get around that?

...magic! =P

Here's what I did:

Step 1: Go to Issues, Etc on demand webpage.

Step 2: Click on the "Embed" button for the sound file you want to embed (it is right of the title and green)

Step 3: Highlight the embed text in the box for the sound file and copy it (Ctl + c)

Step 4: Open up your post in blogger. When you are done typing your part, you are ready to embed the sound file.

Step 5: In the upper right hand side of the edit pane there are two tabs. One is "Compose" which is what we use to make most of our posts. The other is "Edit HTML". Click on the "Edit HTML". This will bring up your post in the HTML format.

Step 6: Paste (Ctl + V) the entire embed text from Issues Etc at the end of what you see in the "Edit HTML" window. That should work.

Let me know if this is not enough information. I will send you screen shots of what I am doing.
