We had a wonderful turnout in Pittsfield last night for the Public Forum on Community Television and PEG Media! Many residents attended, showing their enthusiasm for Central Maine Media Alliance (CMMA). We have such gratitude to those who support this project! Special thanks to Ron Watson (Chair of our Sebasticook Valley region’s ad hoc advisory council) for moderating the panel discussion and Q&A.
Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Manning, founder of UU Women’s Heart, member of the Unitarian Universalist Society for Community Ministries and UUWomen and Religion leadership team, speaks about the importance of multi-media outreach.
This video was inspired by All Souls Tulsa’s video featuring a member that lives in the UK, found here:
I LOVE THIS! Stories like this are why I use many forms of media and outreach to live into my call.
It is why we created projects like UU Talks and virtual Minerva Potlucks.
It is why so many entrepreneurial ministries are using innovative outreach and service platforms. It is why when I do consulting for groups and congregations, encouraging all to incorporate a media component, at least audio and digital-text copies of sermons and services online, but whenever possible integrate video into their ministries. (my background is television so I aim for the highest quality production possible, but seriously – – if you have an iPhone and a gmail account or Facebook account, you have all the technology you need to expand the reach of your ministry – – it may not be the highest quality, but it is a viable option) People are looking for us. Let’s help them find the kind of salvation we have to offer. Help them find a safe and fulfilling place to call their spiritual home. #UUTalks#UULife#UUWomensHeart#StandingOnTheSideOfLove#UUWR
