I have been trying my hand at simple reflections using Powerpoint and putting them on video so that they can be uploaded to You Tube. The learning curve is high and the results are still a bit choppy, but the effort may eventually lead somewhere. This is a new effort, trying to combine a bit of video and slide show.
My first, "A Question" has gotten a bit of play and yesterday made Ruth Gledhill's TimesOnline blog. So, all in all I felt it was a good first try.
Here is my second.
UPDATE PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT (i) IF YOU USE DIAL-UP IT TAKES FOREVER TO LOAD...SO DON'T, (ii) I SEEM TO BE A SPEED READER, SOME ARE HAVING TROUBLE READING THE FULL FRAME BEFORE THE NEXT COMES UP (I WILL TRY TO REPAIR), (iii) IT WOULD BE NICE IF I COULD SPELL CONNECTICUT. Corrections follow.
I began my ministry as a missionary, and I have continued to be very aware of the many people throughout the world engaged in mission. Johnathan, the Mad Priest, wrote a piece on people doing mission , and his essay gave rise to this experiment. One of the things about his post is that he recognized that mission is done by people from all sorts of ecclesastical contexts, but they put the work first. So in this slide show / video I reference someone supported by the Moderator of the Network, the Church of Nigeria as well as The Young Adult Service Corps and the Appointed Missionaries and a range of people whose mission is to "just do their job." Again, this is an experiment in a new medium for me, so forgiving the bumps in the road, I hope you find it useful.
