At the beginning of 2008, we started a conversation around the sermon series Seeing Gray: Faith Morality and Politics in a Black and White World at Resurrection. You can see my video responses to each of the sermon themes at these links:
- Where Faith and Politics Meet – Week 1
- Bridges and Wedges – Week 2
- What to do? Two Rules to Live By – Week 3
- Stage Five: When Christians Grow Up – Week 4
- A Vision for America – Week 5
It has been an experiment in the new use of technology at Resurrection through the Seeing Gray You Tube Channel. I really did not know what to expect when the site was set up. The response was not overwhelming, but I think that it was an important step for the congregation in leveraging technology to build a Christian community where non and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.
What did you think of the series overall? What were some of the strengths? What were some of the weaknesses? How about the use of YouTube? Good? Bad? Indifferent?
