A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Our short-term memory can’t handle everything that you throw at it. Writing things down keeps you from losing ideas forever.

On this episode of the podcast Kevin and Tres are double dipping into a topic that we've talked about before and even posed the question, "Is it okay to steal from other churches?"

Using inspiration from other churches is normal, but we think it's important to know the "why" behind your own inspired execution of someone else's work. Are you in a busy season and reaching for something to plug the holes in a sinking ship? Or, are you broadening your perspective and looking to challenge yourself creatively, building off an idea that you liked? Stealing creative might not be bad, but stealing and not knowing how to use it is criminal.

How can you be respectful of work that has been made that is particularly for an audience, a culture, and tone? And how can you see the influence that a church is making and dissect it to be able to make it personal for your own church culture and community?

Listen in for some practical next steps and how-to's for creatives to remix work that's been done while still honoring the intention and heart behind the original creation. Check it out!
