What is RSS?

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” or “Rich Site Summary”. It is a popular way for websites to distribute (syndicate) their content over different media devices over the Internet. If you have an RSS reader, all you have to do is to subscribe to one of our RSS feeds provided (at the menu) and you will receive the newest MP3 sermon for the category automatically (when you are connected to an Internet connection). It is this simple: you subscribe to an RSS feed, we publish content on our website, and you get the content immediately and automatically (when you are connected online).

How Do I Subscribe to an RSS Feed?

Get a Feed Reader

An RSS feed reader is a program or a website that receives and allow you to read an RSS feed. Most email programs and Web browsers have the ability to read RSS feeds, but the most popular way to view RSS feeds is with a feed reader (dedicated for this function alone). RSS feed readers are available for all computer platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.). You can also use Web-based readers that can be accessed from any computer and work with any operating system (e.g. Google Reader).

Get a Feed

Once you have set up your RSS feed reader, you will need the URL for the feed you want to subscribe to. Your feed reader will provide simple instructions for subscribing to an RSS feed. You can usually paste the URL into a subscription box for most readers. Some Web-based readers provide you with a click-to-subscribe button in your browser.

Voila! You do not have to worry about checking on the website for the latest audio MP3′s any longer.
