This past Sunday I had the privilege of preaching at Bethel UMC in Mt. Washington, KY.
Due to health and safety concerns, there were only four of us in the sanctuary, all of us having specific roles in broadcasting the service on the church’s Facebook page. I’ve preached with a camera in the room before, but never when the camera was my primary means of access to the audience. It’s a different practice, to be sure, but one that preachers will likely have to adapt to going forward.
My sermon was based on two of the lectionary texts for the day (Year A, 2nd Sunday after Pentecost)- Genesis 18:1-10 and Matthew 9:35–10:1. The audio isn’t the greatest, because we were using a phone on a tripod to broadcast on Facebook Live, but hopefully it will come through on your device.
