Wiki Wiki What?
The final big piece of our web site puzzle is probably the most "far out". So if
you don't feel comfortable - don't worry. You won't be required to "pass a test",
but if you'd like to spend some time to learn a little, you might discover a
valuable tool for your own personal ministry or for your group's ministry.
Just below, you can see a section of the web site called a
Wiki. A Wiki is
a special community web site where web pages can be created, shared, and edited
very quickly and very easily ("Wiki" is short for wiki wiki which is "quick
" or "fast" in Hawaiian). Notice that the link for "Wiki" above, takes you to
Wikipedia - which is, coincidentally, a Wiki.
To get a grasp of what the Wiki is about, you might want to spend some time
exploring and reading some of the pages there.
What Could You Use This For?
While the Community Forum is geared towards discussions and things more related
to time, the Wiki is oriented more towards information and space. If you have
something you'd like to have a web page for that serves to document your
ministry or your work, you can use the wiki. For example, the Digital Ministry
team is using the Wiki to document things learned about Digital Ministry. Click on the
"Digital Ministry" link on the web site to see it in use.
You can have a similar web page (or pages) for your own ministries.
Additionally, each user on the wiki has a web page for their user name. You can
feel free to create a "home page" for yourself, kind of like "My Space". For example,
check out Andrew Sandstrom's home page at www.aplaceofgrace.org/wiki/AndrewSandstrom
