Acts8 group offers video to share the word on Easter

Acts8 group offers video to share the word on Easter

The folks at the Acts8 movement have prepared another evangelism video for Easter that can be modified by any Episcopal congregation.  You can find it here.


“Your friends at the Acts 8 Movement are glad to offer the Episcopal Church a video for congregations to promote their Easter liturgies. The video above is our gift to you. You may post it as is, or you can download a high resolution video and with some basic video editing skills create a customized video for your congregation.”
They are also offering the video in a number of languages besides English, including Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Tagalog, Ilocano, and French.
Once again, the video files are available for download and easy-to-follow instructions for customization are provided.
Blogger and Christian Food Movement advocate, Nurya Love Parish has a blog post where she shares excellent insights from the group’s previous effort (a video for Ash Wednesday) that everyone contemplating how to use these tools or how to use them more effectively should read.  She presents seven “lessons learned” that went into creating a better product for the Easter video and invites users to participate in a process of continuing improvement.
Her key takeaway is that the church needs to be in the social media space;

“If you don’t like this way, try a different way. Just begin, and share what you learn.

Remember: the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. If, like me, you are wondering how we reverse the trendline of our aging and shrinking church, why not try some experiments in digital evangelism?

The move to a digital world is the biggest thing the church hasn’t yet come to grips with. Let’s get going.”

I am especially happy that this video is open-captioned.

Ten percent of Americans have some sort of hearing problem* and this will be very helpful.

*The percentage skyrockets when the sermon is about stewardship. 😉

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
