I walked by the TV today and caught a commercial. I stopped because I saw the word ‘god’ on the screen – that always stops me. It doesn’t happen that often so I am always interested in seeing what the message was going to be. It was in the form of a chat conversation – two college guys chatting about what they believe…in any case it led me to the sponsor which is a website – chataboutjesus.com – I don’t know much about this site so I looked at a few of their ads on youtube, and I thought that they were pretty good…thoughtful. There are a lot of people that I know of who are lost. And these ads spoke to these people. I have also included a 2 minute video at our ‘video of the moment’ feature to the lower right of the page. I think is pretty powerful. LMK if you agree. Then I logged on to the chat, and very shortly someone named Dennis came on and we briefly said hello…so there are people there waiting to speak to anyone about Jesus. So how do I get that job? (I’ll let you know.) Pretty cool – the power of the internet. It reminds me of the line from Jesus Christ Superstar, ‘If you came today you could have reached the whole nation. Israel in 4 B.C. had no mass communication.’ But that is a whole other post.
Bottom line: that is my hope for our site here. One more outlet to get the conversation going about the most important subject in our lives – this and the next. I can’t tell you much about the organization behind it all (needhim.org), but was curious as to what you all might think. Check it out and let’s chat…about Jesus.
