Reflections on uploading sermons on YouTube
Here is a sermon that I filmed, edited and uploaded from Easter Sunday at church:
Here are my thoughts on this process:
- It takes too long to upload (although I was impressed that YouTube can keep track of the upload even though my Internet connection was interrupted and my computer turned off mid-upload).
- It might make viewers complacent about attending church.
- There are more interesting, creative and effective ways of proclaiming the Gospel on YouTube.
- But it can give unchurched peoples an opportunity to experience a SMALL part of a church service outside of church.
Conclusion: It might only be worth it for special and uncommon occasions.
