Some of the most popular blogs I post include videos, and for years I’ve kept my eye out for clips to use on SpiritView that share a message true to the values and ideals readers have come to expect see expressed on its pages. I’ve discovered, though, that they are very hard to find! Compared to the millions and billions of videos posted on the web, finding interesting videos that show people living the spiritual truths taught in Christian Science and spontaneously sharing insights, healings and experiences that help other people learn to do the same are rare.
Considering the hundreds of millions of people seeking education and knowledge through watching videos, especially youth, there is a critical need for more video content on the web that shares the point of view Christian Science inspires.
There are Christian Science lectures online, and they do a good job of fulfilling their purpose, but they are an hour long, plus there are many other ways video allows the healing truths of Christian Science to be shared.
So, during my recent trip to the canyonlands in Southern Utah with my wife Kathy, I got inspired to create some videos for SpiritView that highlight inspirations and healing insights that came to me while looking for God’s creation all around. Whether we were on a hike, trailing through a canyon, or looking out from a scenic point, if an idea came, I’d hand Kathy my iPhone and ask her to film me talking for a couple of minutes. She caught on fast. We managed to get several videos recorded that I hope to share with you over the next few weeks.
I believe this makes me a vlogger now—a video blogger. Not totally, of course. I’m still a blogger too! But you can expect some variety from now on as I experiment with video and learn how to use it effectively. Thanks for your patience as we learn what works and what doesn’t work.
Here’s the first one we pulled together after we finished eating lunch on the ledge of a high rocky outlook with an awesome canyon view.
