The Force is strong with this one.
Does anyone know what that guitar riff is after the Vanilla Ice section, just
before Pastor Fisk comes on?
Helen, I’m pretty sure that’s the riff from “Jesus is My Friend” by Sonseed, which was making the rounds on the Internets a while ago as a viral sensation and perfect example of what not to do in “Contemporary” Christian Music. (Hence, the name “Vanilla Ice is my friend”…clever…)
I enjoy Rev. Fisk’s approach. But I gotta say, the hyper-jump-cut editing makes me tired just watching it. I can only handle a few minutes at a time. (And I’m a 34-year old who grew up on fast-action cuts and manic transitions in TV and movies. But this is a whole new level! )
Good on ya, Pastor Fisk. Keep preaching the Word in the unique style God’s given you.
Kudos to Pastor Fisk for having a very effective ministry. The “MTV-style” hyper-jump-cut editing is most appropriate for 18-34 year old youth – which is the target audience, I think. Although I too am no longer in that age bracket, I do enjoy watching Worldview Everlasting in measured amounts.
Many LCMS congregations (including my own) have small groups. Rob Bell has NOOMA dvds with corresponding study guides. Rob Bell is one example of many non-Lutheran authors being used in LCMS small groups.
I sometimes wonder if someone at CPH could take Pastor Fisk’s archived video podcasts, group them by themes, write study guides for them, and then encourage small groups at LCMS churches to use those. Finally, a Lutheran author! Would it work?
