God on the iPod

Another podcasting article mentions bluer. Funny how in an entire interview about podcasting and bluer… I’m quoted for my brief tangent on… money and televangelists. (sigh)

Nick Ciske, media coordinator for Minneapolis Vineyard Church, also called Bluer church, said, ”It takes a lot of money to run a TV show, it takes millions of dollars, and it seems a lot of the focus is on money. Podcasting is basically free. There is never a mention of asking for money. There’s no need.”

The last line makes it sound like podcasting allows the “church of me” to go even further.

”You can get your dose of your worship service when you want it, not necessarily when it’s taking place,” Rainie said.

I certainly hope no one is skipping church because they can catch the podcast. Church is so much more than the sermon!

    dude, you just get taken out of context everywhere… seriously.

  • Nick Says:

    Actually that really wasn’t out of context. I said it, and it’s true. I just feel like I said a bunch of other great stuff.

    Anyways… It’s her article so I should just shut up and be glad for the publicity 😉

    well that is the thing… its just a bummer you were the source they referred to in the money department. you know? legistically, some church had to get the money quote, right?

    here is my great question… what is so bad about churches asking for money? why are we still saying sorry for the sins of the televangelists? should we really be?

    but the “gGodcasting” term gives me the heebie jeebies. Here we go trying to stick The Lover of our souls in a box again. Why does Christiania have to cheese everything up?
