- Faithlife team, how do I revert a group photo back to the default icon? Clicking on the camera only allows me to select another image from my computer; I do not see where I can select no image and use the default. (The screen shot below shows the UI location I am referring to within a group's setting. I realize this shot shows the default icon provided by Faithlife; this is not the group I am concerned about, this is only a graphical example of where I am looking. I'm seeking a general solution applicable to all groups, not a one-off solution to the pictured group.)
- Hi Cary, thanks for reaching out! I just sent this question over to our team, I'll let you know what they suggest! -AJ
- Hey Cary I sent you a Google Drive invite and a Dropbox invite to your email that will give you permission to grab our default avatars. From there you can save the image and then re-upload it to change back to your default. Let me know if there is any other avatars you are looking for.
- I posted a comment to an event in our calendar, but the comment doesn’t show up in our news feed. I would like to see the event appear in my activity when a comment is posted to the event.
- I posted as myself.
- Tried it through Safari as well (same event)—no difference. I can only see the post if I go back to the calendar and open the event. It’s doubtful anyone would ever see the comment.
- What happens when you post to an event that was created some time ago?
- Question on Faithlife Sermons. Due to some issues with Proclaim on week, i had to upload my sermon from another audio file. I tried to add it to an existing sermon series by using the same exact name for that series, but it created another series that now only has the one sermon in it. Is there any way to combine the series or move that one sermon to the other series?
- I’m unable to add an image to the top of a calendar event using the iOS app (tablet and phone). I’m able to select an image in Amber, but when I tap “insert”, nothing happens.

- I really enjoyed the recent article about using Faithlife Groups to run church-wide Bible studies. But I have a comment. I don't think the current file upload area works very well, especially for PDF's. They are not really viewable unless you download them to your computer and it's not that obvious how to do that. I seem to remember that the previous file upload area (pre Amber) was much better. Are there any plans to improve that feature?

- If you double-click the PDF from inside the Files tab, you should see it previewed using most of your screen. Click the 'three lines' in the bottom right and you can go to a detail view and expand it there, too... how would you like it to behave?

- Thanks, Bob Pritchett, I see now that there are more view options than I was aware of. And I was able to enlarge one of the files so I could see it well, without a download to my computer. Not sure what you can change, but if the file viewing controls could be more obvious or intuitive, especially for the less tech savvy, I think it would be a plus. And, thanks Adam Cody for the pointer to moodlecloud and thrirdmill. I wasn't aware of either of those sites and I intend to take a closer look at the resources available there.

- A nice feature to add (if possible) to Faithlife groups would be an event reminder. I would love to see the event appear in my news feed a day before it takes place. It would be good to enable or disable this feature. I don’t need a reminder for Sunday service!😁
- November 11 Confident Hope Randy Kilgore For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21 Philippians 1:19–26 Jeremiah 50; Hebrews 8 Dr. William Wallace was serving as a missionary surgeon in Wuzhou, China, in the 1940s when Japan attacked China. Wallace, who was in charge of Stout Memorial Hospital at the time, ordered the hospital to load his equipment on barges and continue to function as a hospital while floating up and down rivers to avoid infantry attacks. During dangerous times, Philippians 1:21—one of Wallace’s favorite verses—reminded him that if he lived, he had work to do for the Savior; but if he died, he had the promise of eternity with Christ. The verse took on special meaning when he died while falsely imprisoned in 1951. Paul’s writing reflects a deep devotion we can aspire to as followers of Jesus, enabling us to face trials and even danger for His sake. It is devotion enabled by the Holy Spirit and the prayers of those closest to us (v. 19). It’s also a promise. Even when we surrender ourselves to continued service under difficult circumstances, it is with this reminder: when our life and work end here, we still have the joy of eternity with Jesus ahead of us. In our hardest moments, with hearts committed to walking with Christ now, and with our eyes firmly fixed on the promise of eternity with Him, may our days and our acts bless others with the love of God. Make of me, Father, a willing servant in times of weakness and times of strength. Sacrifices offered to God are opportunities to showcase His love. You can make a difference.
