In our world today, it is actually quite easy to live vicariously through others.
We can still talk and share stories and reminisce, but we can do more.
We can communicate as an event happens through phone calls and text messages and internet.
We can relive moments through videos and other recordings.
So if you want to share a bit of the excitement and gain more understanding of what we learned while at the ELCA Youth Gathering, check out the following website: http://www.youtube.com/user/elcagathering
This is a collection of videos from the mass gathering.
There are the presentations by featured speakers, performances by musicians, poetry readings/life reflections, and other videos uploaded that connect with the experience.
I especially recommend watching musician Rachel Kurtz’s “Hallelujah”, speaker Nadia Bolz-Weber, speaker Shaine Clairborne, speaker Leymah Gbowee, musician Tony Memmel and Bishop Hanson’s Sunday sermon.
