With apologies to Victoria Weinstein, and her Beauty Tips for Ministers blog.
One of the tasks that took the most time and caused the most unnecessary trouble was getting the Sunday service bulletin/order of service/order of worship/service sheet to look right. Those of you with limited office staff will understand.
I'm trying to work up a simple workflow, with free and open-source tools, to make this task easier; in particular, TeX and LaTex,Â whichÂ might seem odd choices for church work. It will be an iterative process: the first result will be painful and ugly and should improve in ease and quality. Â I'll be doing it even if there's no expressed interest -- I leave things on this blog that take years to get attention. But if you do have a real-life need, please note it in the comments.
