lisa - very cool of you to comment here! we do in fact make a lot of use of skype for meetings and stuff. for connect groups online we use a lot of tokbox (so that we can have multiple video chatters in there at the same time). but there's a LOT of great use for skype for sure. our campus pastors in africa connect with us frequently for conversations on skype and that saves a TON of money on int'l phone calls for sure PLUS gives us the added benefit of VIDEO. woohoo!
i love that last line: "We are only servants, living revolutionary lives as ambassadors of the King." very cool.
got this request on the list for prayer today, keisha! thanks for letting us know how we can pray for you and your loved ones like this!
Kristen - thanks for asking. The lineup currently says Matthew Barnett is on for Saturday morning\'s session - but you never know til it happens what we\'re gonna do. :-) As for post-Amplified access to these sessions, that isn\'t decided yet, but certainly is a possibility!
great to have you on board melissa!
ok i don't know where i've been, but i'm really happy to have found this (via NicCharalambous - thx dude). you've said it well. online church seems to be so intimidating to so many offline church people. i think it is a tradition for many of us in church to despise what we do not understand. but, thank God there are the Brandon Donaldsons, Bobby Gruenewalds, Nic Charalambouses, and others who are helping blaze a trail into online church.
such a perfect example you give, paul, in your response earlier - why do we need more types of churches? different varieties of people wil be reached by more varieties of churches. it isn't that baptists and methodists must compete. there's plenty of people yet to be reached, and that's why we're doing online church at healing place church. it's not about those who are already in church. it is for those who are not yet here.
there are those who don't come to church, those who won't come to church, and those who can't come to church. so for all of those, whatever their reason - by ALL means, let's take church to them.
thanks for posting this. i'm so glad to have found your site. i'll be back for more... :-)
definitely an amazing journey you're on. next up, a mission to swaziland, i hear?
dude! a FULL decade for sure for y'all!
