One of My Favorite Tools.

As the Worship Arts pastor at New Hope, I have many tools I can use to help me with my job. Today I am sludging through hundreds of choral songs to choose music for the summer choir starting in a few weeks. It’s not easy to find songs that are both musically and thematically appropriate!

This task would be a huge pain if it weren’t for iTunes. iTunes is the free music player program from the Apple company, yet it runs on a Windows PC as well. It’s available at Today, instead of searching for several CDs, I can simply search through the iTunes library and listen to all the choir sample CDs that publishing companies have sent in — many of these sample CDs are buried deep inside cabinets, but with iTunes I can access everything on my computer. iTunes is saving me a lot of time today, although I’m making up for that saved time by spending it writing a blog to tell you about it. lol.

In the words of Kip, “I love technology . . .”

  1. Hi Adam – I was just reading some on your blog – especially the entry on ‘One of Your Favorite Tools’, that being iTunes. Have you tried I would like to invite you to come try it for yourself. It’s a worship planning web site that can free up tons of your time. It allows you to catalog songs (including audio, chord charts and sheet music, words, lots of other info), plus plan your worship services with drag-n-drop ease, and it serves as an enormously helpful communications tool for your ministry.

    Check it out! Thank you! Blessings, -Mark

  2. I believe what you said was very logical. However, what about this?
    suppose you added a little information? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good., but what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean One of My Favorite Tools.
    – The Big Diehl is a little boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    write post headlines to grab viewers interested.

    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    instead of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read.

    I will definitely be back.

  4. Good web site you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to
    find high-quality writing like yours these days.
    I really appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
