Centering Your Week Sept. 15, 2021

Speakers:Brandon Baxter

Centering Your Week, Week 2: This is a Wednesday evening series that rotates each month through WORD (scriptures for the month), WISDOM (Rev. Baxter interviews a guest), WONDER (exploring spiritual practices), and WAY (the way we live out our faith, ministries of compassion and care).  Tonight’s session is WISDOM, and Rev. Brandon Baxter interviews Mac Pirkle, a life-long member of West End, who has led the Multi-Media Ministry Team since its beginnings around 2008.  Mac gives a history of how multi-media began and developed through the years and emphasizes that it was all rooted in ministry – how can media enable ministry?  Then Brandon probes Mac for how the media adapted to the pandemic as well as how the ministry staff adapted to there being no people in the pews, but having cameras to speak toward.  Through the interview they explore many aspects of the media involvement in enhancing the worship services.
