Today we made a video for our fellow students who are away on internship this year. (An 8 month full time internship in supervised ministry is required before we can be ordained...I'll be doing mine next year. I won't know where I'll be placed until next April...waiting for the details will strain my patience, but is out of my control!)
In past years, intern gifts have been more conventional: grocery cards, little figurines, greeting cards, etc. And while we will still send the cards, we also wanted to do something more personal, something that allowed them to feel connected with the group. So we made a fake news video for their viewing pleasure...and, apparently, your viewing pleasure also.
PS...I'm one of the sign-holders in the background, wearing a black top. We didn't realize the camera angle was so low or we would have stooped down more often, but you can catch glimpses of my face behind the male "news anchor" throughout the video. LOL
