Youth Ministry is a fundamentally theological task

“Youth ministry would do well to acknowledge that it is a fundamentally theological task. It attends to divine action: it seeks to do its work in a manner that is faithful to (and strives to articulate) God’s action in the world.

Youth ministry is a uniquely theological task that examines how divine action connects to human beings in the first third of the human lifespan.”

Animoto All Access

Today I tweeted, asking “is an animoto all access account worth the money? what do you think?”

Here are the responses I received:

@tonyRoos said: i have the all access account for two reasons. Downloadable and longer than 30 seconds.

@shawnmichael said: hey also have a great program for non-profits: http://animoto.com/cause/features; I currently have a free 1year pro-account

@saraeden said: I really think Animoto is worth the money. I get a lot of use out of it. It saves me a ton of time :)

@sdishong said: yes…. i use it all the time!

@randy_moore said: I like it and use it often.

So, I went ahead and signed up for it. I made this video quickly from my family’s vacation photos.

If you sign up for an all access pass, use my referral code: utkhbcxw and get $5 off.
