“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Mt.14:28-31
I have asked the congregation to video parts of the Apostles’ Creed. I’m attempting to create a video “mash up” for online worship and I’ve gotten some feedback from congregation members saying they are not technically adept at doing this.
Okay I get that, however in March I had precisely six days to figure out how to record and upload a Sunday worship service. In a matter of hours, we went from “we will hold worship as long as we can” to “sorry, the sanctuary is closed”. I have not had any video training and have learned the “sink or swim” method to provide on-line worship content. Since those early days, the service has improved (at least I think so), and I’ve done a lot of other creative on-line things.
This brings me back to the Apostles’ Creed. I want to create a mash up video with various members speaking different lines. I’m asking members to do a short line of the creed. You may think that is hard, but it is the easy part. I need to figure out how to do the overall video. And I have no clue…yet. But I will figure it out if you do your part.
Brothers and sisters, can you please step out of the boat and walk on water? This can be a great thing!
But only if you have a little faith in what you can do.
