I was recently asked about why we use the media at Busted Halo® to do ministry and my answer was simple: We’re just doing what Jesus did.
That’s right. Jesus used the media of his day: storytelling, itinerant preaching, mountaintop gatherings.
And moreover the church has kept that going: St. Paul was a letter writer (and we close the year of St Paul today–so blessings to our friends the Paulist Fathers). Isaac Hecker, Servant of God–the Paulist founder was a public lecturer and a publisher and believed in using all kinds of media. His theory was that we need to proclaim “old truths in new forms.”
And we extend that message of Jesus today using all that we have at our disposal. TV, Radio, Internet, Facebook, You Tube whatever.
What kinds of things have you sampled on the net or TV that have faith based material on them?
