Live-stream of my video to ECS.

The other day I recorded a video for a Christian high school.  It will be shown today and live-streamed from this page (it will be under worldview week #4) somewhere between 8:30am-9am CST.

I got this email from Mr. Brink this morning.

JT …. What a gift!

I believe that we will be live-streaming the video. Here’s the link http://www.playonsports.com/channels/ecs-cordova-tennessee

It will be listed as “worldview week day 4.” I do think that it will be archived – so, it doesn’t have to be watched live. I don’t know that you’ll care to watch it, but I am offering this to you so that I can be transparent … and you can know that we are not showing anything other than gratitude for your work.

Your video will air toward the end (like in the last 10 minutes of the 40 minute session). There will be some student participation toward the beginning, but I want to leave your segment to the end, so that I can leave the students with something to think about as they leave the session. And, by putting it near the end, that removes the idea that I’m going to spend 20 minutes critiquing it. Hopefully, by the end of the week, we can get you some video responses from students.

You don’t know us, and yet have really gone far beyond what we could ask. Your video is clear; it’s poignant; it is super easy to follow. I was hoping for you to just sit down and sort of go from the hip. Though, I appreciate the work you put in … editing it – making it just right. It’s also light … in that it’s not dogmatic; it’s open (and the opening is comical). If there is anything that we can ever do for you, please let us know.

Many thanks,

Noah

Not going to lie…as many religious people as I deal with who are back-handed, conniving, and looking to score a “win” at any cost, Noah has been very refreshing.  I’m interested to see how the students respond.  :P

    Maybe there’s hope for mankind after all. This Noah fellow is indeed a breath of fresh air. I hope the dogma police don’t arrest him.

    Error occurred. That always happens with live streaming on youtube.

    I will have to check this out later, when I can watch. But it is good to see someone actually want an honest talk about the merits of faith. Even if his students reject the arguments put forth, I imagine some lessons in critical thinking will be learned.

    At least they might come away with a different outlook on what an atheist is like.

    Hey JT!! I’m a student at ECS and was blessed to see your video this morning. Thank you so much for taking the time to create the video, exceptional thoughts and I would love to hear more if you are willing to talk. You are genuine and that is something to admire. (which indeed I do)

    The whole video seems to be working. Thought that it was well done and very fair in the presentation.
