A Christmas Blender

Jeremy Schulz, Director of Music Ministries for Point Pleasant UMC in Elk Grove, Calif. wrote and created this short film for an Advent worship service focused on building community. His reflections explore the true and commercial meanings of Christmas, and what that means when the church steps outside of its walls, into the world. Another member of the church’s worship team, Jeremy Wayland, filmed and edited the video, using camera movement and lighting effects to create a powerful look and feel. Music licensed by The Music Bed bit.ly/19cYwdQ.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)

Hi. I tried to watch this 3 different times, in 3 different places (web sites)…and none of them ran smoothly…bumps in the sound, etc. Curious!
