Recycled Spam and other Cool Stuff

I added a new section in the right column of my blog entitled, "Cool Sites to Stir Your Thought and Creativity." I spend a decent amount of time scanning websites for cool ideas to use in worship and to dabble in when I am being creative. These are a few of the sites I think you should check out.

I didn't put a bunch of crap there because I wanted a long list. I have been to all of these sites and spent time there over the last few months and years. You will have your favorites for sure but nothing in the column sucks. I find when I visit sites like these I have way more energy and creativity to invest.

As a teaser, I posted the picture above from Spam Recycling. Spam Recycling uses mathematical algorithms to convert spam into art. Just for fun, I recycled the very post you are reading right now and the picture you see is a mathematical translation of this post.

We did a series not too long ago and used this site to make art from the book of 1 Thessalonians. If you are looking for cool art for your next series, drop a Bible passage, sermon notes, and music into the recycle bin. Tell your church how the art was made.

Thank you, David McDonald for turning me on to this site. You are a good friend and I am so happy to be working with you.
