And I Like to Do Drawings

Our church is looking to have some changes done to the building, so we retained an architect to draw plans for the work. His initial proposal gave us a few options, and we are to select which option we want and then he will draw the real plans.

For the initial proposal, there was a rendered drawing of how the church would look with a certain change. One of the church members commented to the architect that the drawing looked pretty good, and then he asked him what software program he used to do the 3-D drawing. The architect’s response was “Google Sketchup“.

I hadn’t thought of asking that question, and I certainly didn’t expect the architect’s answer. I figured they must have some expensive architectural-type software that they use. But apparently Sketchup is good enough for them, and probably easier than whatever they have. And the price is good, of course, like all of Google’s products.

Some people worry about having all of their computer stuff run by Google – putting all their eggs in one basket. Iit is certainly possible to do just about everything online through a Google service. If anything happens to Google, or something changes such as now some things are pay services, then you would have to change your whole online experience if you used Google products for everything. But I don’t see that as a likely event.

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
