I quickly made the video above after discerning that I should agree to nomination as President of the House of Deputies of The Episcopal Church. It is an important role in leading the senior house of the General Convention which assures the voices of lay persons as well as clergy and bishops are part of the councils of our church. It is also an important office between conventions. I ask for prayers for all the nominees and prayers for discernment for the deputies as we seek nothing less than God’s will.

I created these three videos for the General Convention of The Episcopal Chuch meeting in Indianapolis. The one above is my take and below are Tom Ferguson and the bottom video is Susan Snook speaking on this General Convention.
Human suffering is ubiquitous. What makes Jesus’ death on the cross is not what humans did to Jesus, but that God responded with love to hate and with life to death. This Thirteenth Stations video goes with four previously posted videos as part of a series of 16 I am creating (the fourteen stations plus prologue and epilogue to frame them in a context)
These video Stations of the Cross use film of more recent examples of needless suffering alongside images of Christ’s passion to challenge viewers to see how Jesus’ death and resurrection can redeem all of the many times and ways the innocent have endured pain even to death.
Video created by Frank Logue. Music is the hymn “Go to Dark Gethsemene” played on the dulcimer by Joshua Varner.
I created the above 90-second clip as a teaser for the Rich Where It Counts Talk given by Charles V. Douglas on behalf of the Legacy Society of the Diocese of Georgia. This gives people who might be interested in attending one of the three upcoming sessions, what his talk is like. After the remaining sessions in the six-event series are completed, I will post the full 32-minute video of his talk on the connection between financial capital and spiritual capital.
An overblown movie trailer style invitation to save the dates for the 2013 Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia to be held February 7-9 in Tifton Georgia as we are hosted by the congregation of St. Anne’s.
Human suffering is ubiquitous. What makes Jesus’ death on the cross is not what humans did to Jesus, but that God responded with love to hate and with life to death. These video Stations of the Cross use film of more recent examples of needless suffering alongside images of Christ’s passion to challenge viewers to see how Jesus’ death and resurrection can redeem all of the many times and ways the innocent have endured pain even to death.
Video created by me with music from the hymn “Go to Dark Gethsemene” played on the dulcimer by Joshua Varner. These are the first four of an intended set of 16 videos giving the traditional 14 Stations of the Cross together with a prologue and epilogue. These were created on Good Friday 2012.
I created the following videos for the 191st Convention of the Diocese of Georgia to help illustrate the ways in which the Diocese is already living into the vision we are projecting with the Campaign for Congregational Development:
The Episcopal Diocese of Georgia was hosted once again by St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church on MLK Drive and their Rector, the Rev. Cheryl Parris. The event included a youth lock in with some significant teaching on the Civil Rights Movement. Then a much larger group joined the youth to walk and sing. Thanks to A.L. Addington who chaired the event and the churches who took part. The video tries to capture both the parade and the youth seeing videos of Dr. King and others.
I created this video of a Christmas meditation offered by Scott Anson Benhase, 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia.
I created this different way of telling the Christmas story using Mark Bradford’s Christian parody of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. The song was originally produced for Darla Robinson. Mark sells his music, including this song, at mark-bradford.com
Thanks to Mark and Darla for permission to use the song. The video was cut using public domain films online at www.archive.org
I created this video of the team I worked with in Kairos Prison Ministry on our first weekend at Smith State Prison.
Two years ago, I posted the above video online. The Episcopal Church had first created a short video on Who We Are based on 3,000 people and 5 years of research. You can see that original video online here: Around One Table: Who Are We Video.
Brandon Watson wrote his take on answering the same question and posted it on Facebook (with the pen name Valiance Weaver). So Victoria and I took Brandon’s text and created the video above using some of his footage and various photos of Episcopal Churches from here and there on the web. The one criterion was that every image had to be from an Episcopal Church (including the homeless man “Six Pack” who routinely worships at a street church).
As I wrote that the time, “With a larger budget for dynamite, chariots and tigers, it would have been more impressive, but we did create the above videotape without going over its $0 budget.”
Since then, the term Episconinja has not exactly taken off, but it does remain. The term has even made it into sermons like this one from The Rev. Kit Carlson at All Saints Episcopal Church in East Lasing, Michigan: Episconinja Sermon and this one from Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Benicia, California All Saints’ Sermon and the video closed the Diocesan Convention in Western North Carolina in 2010 (Reference Here).
How might this more viral approach to sharing what The Episcopal Church has to offer be used now? How will we share what we have to offer in 2011 and beyond without making claims over and against other denominations?
This is from the Celebration of New Ministry on October 2, 2011.
The video above offers a 6 1/2 minute glimpse of the 2-hour Easter Vigil celebrated by the clergy of the Diocese of Georgia at our Fall Clergy Conference.
A message from Dade Brantley, the Executive Director of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia’s camp and conference center, Honey Creek. Dade tells about the current financial difficulties, including how we got into the current bind and what is being done to turn around the center.

The Rev. Jason Haddox wrote and Gabriel Michael Lawrence and Eli Irvin perform a Hymn for Honey Creek to raise awareness about the ongoing bond sale to benefit the camp and conference center of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia.
I created the video above last year in response to both the tragedy in Haiti and Pat Robertson’s comments on it, which I found hurtful, rather than helpful. I wanted to offer what I felt was a more biblical way of framing the disaster.
Here is a selection of videos I made while serving at King of Peace, Kingsland:
The Bangles song “Walk Like an Egyptian serves as the soundtrack for our Kids in the Kingdom Week video.
Parishioners talk about what they love about King of Peace.

My first video work was this now embarrassing video introducing King of Peace, Kingsland, with a free mp3 I found online.
