Worship Planning - Google Docs.

Around this time last year I was busy creating tools to help organize various areas of our ministry life.  Among those tools was my worship planning binder, which was a big help - and a big clunker of a binder to haul around with the rest of my pack-mule life.  (I blame it on the preschoolers.)

The binder and all its glory was a paper system, which meant there were occasions throughout the year where I left it in one place and stood wishing it was with me in another.  In weeks past I began been trying to find a digital solution that would have similar functionality with greater accessibility.

Enter Google Docs.

I created a very, very basic (read: rudimentary and not aesthetically pleasing) spreadsheet in my Google Drive with the same informational elements my clunky binder contained.

It can be edited anywhere I have internet access, and I can add members of our worship planning committee as editors.  I can give others viewing and commenting ability, as well.

Can't lie.  I'm pretty happy about all this.  Hope this little tip is useful in your neck of the woods.
