The Best Laid Plans…

Despite assurances that we were going to launch our new website this past weekend, I have now been notified by the development team that it will be delayed at least a week due to a catastrophic server failure that resulted in a loss of two weeks worth of work. I’m embarrassed and frustrated that we haven’t been able to deliver to you what was promised to me. Our original date was January 1. That got pushed back to February 1, and now we’re being pushed back even further.

I’m sorry to have given out information that later turned out to be undeliverable. I’m most disappointed that we cannot launch our new video series, Engage! I’ve gotten a lot of email about it but it was designed to fit the new platform. Since the website will be delayed at least a week and possibly two, I am going to check on some other options to add the first episode to our current website on a temporary basis.

Again, please accept my apology. We’re going to try to get all that fixed as soon as we can.

    I have seen it to be true many times, that delays can actually be God’s perfect timing… so no worries! 🙂 His “platform” has no glitches! 🙂

    “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive those who didn’t back up our website in case of catastrophic server failure.” 😉

    Sorry to hear about this. Hope the new site will be up soon.

    I do appreciate all the gracious comments and support. And, while I do believe that God works good out of all things, even delays like this, I am not a fatalistic enough to believe that all delays are God’s doing. I agree with Paul that the enemy does his best to thwart stuff God wants. Not saying this rises to that, only that I don’t think our current delay has anything to do with God’s timing. But I’ve no doubt he will work good out of it. And forgiveness? Always forgiveness!

    One bit more – all the best indeed to the tech team working on this. I pray they have clarity and can see and resolve the problems.

    I’ve learnt that God is understands computers and software and all that stuff far better than we do. So no hesitation in trusting Him to lead this team through the process.
