Six Minutes of Gratitude

This video has been on Youtube for almost two years now, so you may already be familiar with it. But if, like me up until Sunday, you've never seen it, then give yourself the treat of watching. It's only about six minutes long, features gorgeous cinematography, a precocious little girl at the beginning who is too cute for words, a great message about gratitude and living in the present, and narration by the Benedictine monk David Steindl-Rast. A film by LouieSchwartzberg. Enjoy... … [Read more...]

Three Video Clips: Speaking of Mysticism in Portland, OR

Here are three brief excerpts from a talk I gave in Portland, OR, in October 2010 on the topic of Christian mysticism. They were filmed and produced by Cathy Zheutlin of Holy Rascals — a media company that produces videos and webinars for the spiritually adventurous. In the first one, I tell an amusing story of one of my monastic mentors, Father Anthony, who gave me some grief about the difficulty of defining the word "mysticism"...So in this next video, I offer less of a "definition" of … [Read more...]

A shout out to Evelyn Underhill and her wonderful book

Over the next few weeks or so I'll be posting four new videos on Youtube.One will be an "about me" video, one in which I talk about my three most recent books, one in which I talk about an idea I first presented at the Patheos website on "compass points for the spiritual life," and finally, this short little segment on "the book that changed my life." Here you go, it's only a minute long: About two years ago I gave a paper on Evelyn Underhill's Mysticism at a conference on the … [Read more...]

[SMS] Shine

I found this on the Fish Atlanta's website. Here's what they say: Take a look at David Crowder's brand new single, "[SMS] Shine"!  This amazing video was created with a LiteBrite and 1 million pegs. Everything you see in the video actually happened -- NO computer generated graphics or effects!  Even details such as the piano playing in the background and the monkeys beating a drum in perfect time was done free of digital affects and computer animation. It took 2,150 man hours, 1,200 LITE-BRITE im … [Read more...]

Fran and Rhiannon singing at the Friends of L’Arche Atlanta

Here are links to videos of Fran and Rhiannon singing at the Friends of L'Arche Atlanta coffeehouse on June 26, 2010 (our anniversary). I'm sorry I don't have the videos embedded — they're not on Youtube and I can't figure out if there's a way to embed them from the Photoshop website. I'll ask the guy who filmed them to put them on Youtube, and if he does, I'll embed them here. But for now, please just follow the links. They're both great fun, and I'm just as proud as can be. I'll Fly Away ( … [Read more...]
