Thank you all so very much for your wonderful response to this videocast series! Sharon and I have enjoyed the thoughtful and supportive interaction we've had with so many of you, and your interest and input have helped drive the decision to launch the ten sessions as a single volume. Many of you have shared that you're using these video clips to stir discussion in your families, friendships and small group studies, and that thrills my heart. Our main desire all along has been that this will stir your thinking about issues of eternal signficance and instigate meaningful conversation with others.
The links to the ten sessions can be found at the bottom of this page. If this is your first time learning about this series, you'll find the following introductory information helpful:
I met Sharon Hersh when I was a college sophomore. She was a junior, and I had admired her from a distance as the gifted national debater brilliant enough to verbally put the best and brightest in their place without compromising an ounce of feminine grace. The moment we met a friendship was born as we passionately talked our way around the world. We unfortunately lost touch as our families and respective ministries grew, but we reconnected about ten years ago and discovered our stories had taken us on very different paths.
As we cried and laughed our way through the joy and sorrow of our lives, we quickly realized that our perspectives on faith and practice were as diverse as our stories. As we hashed through issues of importance to us both, in spite of our differences we were continually reminded how strongly Christ has anchored our hearts to the truth of His infallible Word. We learned enough from each other in our discussions that we were prompted with the idea of sharing some of our conversations in a videocast series we've titled Radically Redemptive Relationships: Finding Common Ground For Love's Sake.
The conversations are ten to fifteen minutes, covering a variety of random and unrelated topics. I am so grateful for Ben Sullivan and his team at Novel Motion Pictures for their work. They were amazing even though we still haven't forgiven them for not making us look twenty years younger. And when you hear the introductory song, I think you'll want to meet my beautiful friend Sharon Gerber at Celloasis. Her music is glorious.
