As the first wave of DVD/CD sets have been littered across Canada (and some sent out as far as the US, UK and Panama!), the first responses are making their way back to OSFA? headquarters.

Here’s an excerpt of a review written by Bishop Keith Elford, of the Free Methodist Church in Canada:

“…I think that these men and women who are experimenting with approaches (but not with the message) deserve a respectful hearing…watch in humility to what the Holy Spirit is saying through these brothers and sisters who are wrestling with how to reach Canadians. Listen to their attitudes toward the faith tradition. As one of them puts it, they are on a search to rediscover the richness of the Christian tradition plus understand what is current in culture plus create something that is original and somehow “mush” it together to have a Kingdom presence in a way that is sustainable for the long term…”

In other news, a new WebShort is up entitled The Role of the Internet. It was especially difficult to not include this sequence in the film, because the net plays such a vital role in connecting and equipping these new and evolving forms of church. Due to some technical glitches, the poor sound quality of this excerpt precluded it from being part of the final draft of the film. Nonetheless, it is an important piece of the puzzle.
