On Being a Virtual Conductor

Today’s YouTube for You will have an impact on next Tuesday’s YouTube to Use.

Years back, at a Youth Contact Meeting in the ArchBalt, then director Mark Pacione discussed the role of youth ministers as a conductor of talents within the parish.

There is a real beauty to the development of Eric Whitacre’s virtual choir here and I would contend that this is truly the gift of the WORLD wide web and the possibility for us.  How can we, as Church, engage social networking in such as manner as to convey the “you are not alone” in discipleship, that faith can be viral, and that one voce can make a difference and can be overwhelming when joined with others.  This sort of connection will never replace face-to-face incarnational relationships… But, WOW, what a hint towards connection as choir, as Church, as humanity.
