Two of the videos posted in Entertainment vs. Worship elicited quite an interesting bit of discussion.
Carl Lentz Video Introduction
For The River’s Carl Lentz Introduction, a Facebook comment thread birthed 40+ comments. This comment thread went through some “unintended revisions”, that are noted in the thread itself. For starters, two of the authors that contributed to the comment thread (Nick Roman and Niki Hurley/Paulk) deleted some of their comments in an attempt—we assume—to cover up their blatantly poor representation of Christ. Later in the thread, I copied and pasted them from Facebook’s email notifications so that we had a complete record, though it ends up somewhat out of order.
You can view that conversation on my wall on Facebook here (my wall is public for now). The following gallery of images (click on the first image and it will be enlarged in a lightbox) also shows the comment thread as screen captured on 2/26/11.
Come Together Performance
For the Come Together Video, a blog’s posting and criticism of the video birthed 90+ comments. The following gallery of images (click on the first image and it will be enlarged in a lightbox) also shows the comment thread as screen captured on 2/26/11. Since then, Ingrid Schleuter, who ran the blog, has taken the whole blog down (for unrelated reasons).
