Video teachings

The Work of the People is a collection of thoughtful videos from a wide variety of priests, authors, and Christian leaders. You can find some free videos on their site or Facebook page. We have included some clips here that have been helpful to us:



Outside the Script - Something is to be learned in the travail and not in the triumph. Peter Enns on Job, suffering and not putting God in a box, even if that box is in the bible. This was produced by Work of the people.


Reformulating all possibilities - Thoughts from a few theologians, authors and practitioners on Jesus and the Cross. This was produced by Work of the people.


What makes a hero?  - What trials unite not only Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins but many of literature's most interesting heroes? And what do ordinary people have in common with these literary heroes? Matthew Winkler takes us step-by-step through the crucial events that make or break a hero. This is a TEDed video. Lesson by Matthew Winkler, animation by Kirill Yeretsky.
