God isn't bland. The Church shouldn't be, either.
Steve Jobs was right, convenience is everything.

Apple is known for creating great quality products: iPod, iPhone, and iPad (which I am using to write this post).

Though Apple is known for quality, we really don’t look at Apple for creating something that is probably more important than quality.


Yes, convenience. Apple creates products that are productive to use but that are so convenient we don’t even give the competition a second thought at times. When you think about the iPad, it is somewhere between an iPhone and a Macbook Pro. Almost everything that you can do on a Macbook or iPhone, you can do on the iPad. It is a convenient product.

With an iPod, people plug it into their car stereo to listen to music instead of listening to the radio. The iPod is a convenient product, and the iPhone is probably one of the most convenient products ever built. What can you not do on the phone – especially the iPhone 4?

With this said, convenience is not left to products and most certainly not to Apple, Inc. At !mpact we try to create applications and processes that are not only convenient for our community but for our staff as well. If it is our desktop or iPhone app, or how we greet our attendees at the door, we try to make things as convenient as possible for people to connect with us and find out what is happening no matter where they are in the world and no matter what type of device they are on.

Convenience is everything.

Question: How do you or your organization make things convenient for your community or staff?
