CONFERENCE SUBSCRIPTIONS: THE “EASIEST INTERNET FUNCTION”

letter and ligntening bolt I remember early on in the life of Brigada Today, our early “tech support” helper, Jonathan Marsden, used to say that handling one’s subscription to an email conference should be the most basic, most fundamental interaction with the Internet. All the other items… FTPing a file, writing web pages, etc., were perhaps a challenge, but Jonathan could never figure out why it was so difficult for folks to learn to handle their conference addresses. Well here we are, six years later, and today I’m just as mystified as he was six years ago! Every week I get email from users saying, “I’ve changed email providers; please switch my Brigada Today to the following address…” Sometimes they say, “I’m so-and-so’s secretary and he’s no longer with our organization. Could you please cancel our subscription?” And every once and awhile, someone writes with volcano-like anger in their email, as if they’re about to turn me over to the email police! “If you don’t stop sending me these emails, I’m going to do such-and-such.” My answer is always (always) the same. “Hey… it’s automated. With all due respect, you (or someone from your org.) signed up for it; you maintain it.” Since we never subscribe others to this list, that means all of us signed up for it! :-) So please re-read the first few lines of this message, up there by the address header (beginning with the word, “Important!”).

Bottom line: Let’s learn this fundamental Internet protocol of handling our own subscriptions. Asking the compiler of a list of 10,000 subscribers to change an address manually is a bit like asking a representative from your electric utility to come over to your apartment to change a light bulb.

And probably, the odds of it happening are about the same. :-)

DIGITAL HOME OR DIGITAL DOG

lighting the way We continued to receive a flurry of emails, warning Brigada participants about “Digital Home” A.K.A. “Digital Dog” (who would name their business “digital dog“???). (The video camcorder source mentioned in last week’s Brigada Today.) Folks recommended http://www.crutchfield.com or basically anything else besides the “dog” site. Interestingly enough, we had been burned here by the “dog” site before, but didn’t realize the digital “home” site was actually the same company! So… buyers beware. caution

THE FIELDS IN JAPAN ARE WHITE FOR HARVEST!

At least two mission organizations are stepping up their efforts for Japan. One, Harvest Fields Ministries, has noted that the economy there is in recession and the people are experiencing job layoffs, early retirement and downsizing–things they haven’t seen in two generations. As a result, HFM is beginning a push to recruit 200 church planters to respond to that open door. If interested, write mikeathfministriesdotcom  (mikeathfministriesdotcom)   or visit the “How big is your vision?” page on their website at http://www.hfministries.com. You may also telephone Harvest Fields Ministries at 417-883-4134.

The other organization, Team Expansion, is shocked at the incredible size of Tokyo and the opportunities to impact 30 million people in one city! The Louisville-based ministry is putting together a 10-week program for those who’d like to check it out during the summer of 2002. All participants will work with a combination of seasoned missionaries and local Japanese hosts. For more information, visit them on the web at http://www.teamexpansion.org or write infoatTeamExpansiondotorg  (infoatTeamExpansiondotorg)  .

THE BACKPAGE: 10/40 WINDOW UPDATE

books and pen The 10/40 Window is alive – but isn’t well. Luis Bush writes, in an article soon to appear in Mission Frontiers, “The 10/40 Window continues to represent the primary geographic challenge entering the twenty-first century. By 2025 there will be over 8.3 billion people in our world. Over a billion will need cross-cultural witness to understand the gospel, most of whom will live in the 10/40 Window. It is the geographical location in which the concentration of the main spiritual, ideological, social, urban, people group challenges are most prominent. There are an estimated 1.2 to 1.4 billion people who have never had the chance to hear the gospel and over 95% of these individuals reside in the Window area. It is where 85% of the world’s poorest and most deprived live. It is the residence of over 95% of the Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists in the world. Many of the world’s least reached peoples live in this area. From the ‘Joshua Project 2000 list of Unreached People’, there are still 249 of large groups which remain unclaimed, with no agencies reportedly planning to send workers to them; 542 of them currently have no church planting team on-site; and 1,107 are without a congregation of at least 100 believers.” Yikes. gulp With the needs still so stark, we dare not allow our global efforts to fade. We’ve got to avoid missiological “burn-out,” where fads and campaigns give way to complacency and apathy. Let’s retool, retrain, and rebuild our vigor… and let’s not give up or give in until every last inhabitant of the planet has a chance to say “yes” to Jesus! (Thanks to Rick and the folks at: http://www.missionfrontiers.org )
