The closing seconds of each of the videos direct people to Fr. Matthew’s church site – that of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Yonkers, NY. To me this is what ‘outreach’ (for want of a better word) is all about. Putting a human face on the church and not taking ourselves too seriously.
I’ll look forward to watching more of thse videos – the one where he ‘plays the Super Mario Brothers theme song on the church bell system’, also the one where he ‘vows to hide the old church sign in a place no one will ever find it, and swoops down darkened stairwells and past boilers to a suspense-building orchestral tune from an Indiana Jones movie’.
As I said, this is how the church should be using You Tube. Not by posting the Archbishop’s sermons. No disrespect to the Archbishop or anything.
