I was talking with a guy named Dillon today. He asked me: “How have you found media to be effective in mnistry.” Here’s what I said:

“The story-driven nature of media makes it a powerful vehicle for sharing the Story — and for encouraging believers with accounts of others’ faithful lives.

Hebrews 12 talks about the “cloud of witnesses” that surrounds and encourages us. Media can populate that crowd with fellow believers we’d never meet otherwise! To me, this is the value of media in ministry. It’s not a substitute for face-to-face human interaction, but media can widen our perspective and deepen our resolve to persevere together.”

It’s too bad Christian media doesn’t put more effort into telling stories about well-lived lives.

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.
