A week ago today, I was at a UMR Communications board of directors meeting. This was my first meeting. There are a great deal of challenges and opportunities that are before UMR Communications. I am excited to see what will be next. Will you please share how you connect with UMR Communications? It may be through the United Methodist Reporter, umportal.org, other publications, digital printing, books and journals or design services.
How has UMR Communications impacted you?
Last week I wrote about the Amazon Kindle and the UM Publishing House and the possibilities of offering the Book of Discipline, Resolutions, etc. in an electronic format that would be available via the Kindle.
I received an email from a staff member of the UMPH indicating that the Book of Discipline and the Book of Resolutions are now in the process of being readied for the Kindle. In addition, research is being done about the rights around the Book of Worship and making it available as well.
Well done, UMPH. Well done.
I believe that this is an action that is pointing in the right direction for the denomination. A good sign.
What else would be helpful from the denomination in terms of digital publishing, database publishing or other resources that might be offered?
