The Christmas Story in Instagram Photos & More

The Christmas Story in Instagram Photos & More

December 13, 2013 by

Love this video from Discovery Church in Melbourne, Australia. They tell the Christmas story using some 600 Instagram photos:

You can also download an HD version of the video to use in your church (thanks to Steve Fogg for this one). For more on video, check out our post how your church can create short video.

More fun stuff this week:

  • More video: The WestJet Christmas giving video has been making the rounds (19 million times). Phil Bowdle says, “This is what brilliant, effective, memorable, brand-building advertising looks like.”
  • Fail: Stephen Brewster shares 10 lessons learned from failure.
  • Women: Remember that controversy over gender diversity? Rachel Held Evans has created a list of 101 women speakers (with some help from our own Katie Standlund). Plenty of qualifiers and loads more suggestions in the comments. A great resource not only for gender balance but just as a great way to find some powerful voices doing amazing things.
  • Dear Leader: A letter for discouraged church leaders with thoughts on expectations, people pleasing, honesty and lies. Earlier this week we talked about fighting stress in the middle of the Christmas season.
  • Social Christmas: Tim Peters offers 20 Christmas scriptures, quotes and questions you can share on social media.
  • Merry Christmas: Get all three of our ebooks—Outspoken, Dangerous and Church Communication Heroes—and save some cash. Grab our ebook bundle for yourself or your team.
  • That’s Me: Check me out on the ChurchMag Spotlight. Eric Dye and I talk about what makes great church communication, how you don’t need big budgets to do it right and some good books for church communicators.
