It’s great to see my Bishop using new media to get the message out. I’d like to encourage all pastors to consider using video to communicate with their parishioners. It’s highly effective and all you need is a decent digital video camera and a YouTube or vimeo account. There’s effectively no cost involved other than the time to produce and share it.

In the first of two videos posted on his blog today, Bishop Stika (Diocese of Knoxville), a diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan, gives his predictions for the summer baseball season.

In the second video Bishop Stika speaks to young adults in their 20′s and 30′s, inviting them to be active in their parishes.
