As you may be aware 2017 celebrated the 500th year of the Reformation. The Youth Department of the North England Conference launched an online video series called Lineage. The goal of this series is to connect us today with our spiritual heritage and to understand where we come from as a people. I would like to make you aware of this excellent resource and suggest some ways that it can be utilised.
The video series is following a chronological journey from Constantine in the 4th century to around the year 1800. It includes episodes on reformers such as John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, John Calvin and groups such as the Waldenses and Albigensian's and how our history today is connected to the different parts of the Reformation. The series launched in January this year and it is currently on the 6th episode. Each video is only 3-5 minutes long and all of them are filmed on site with stunning videography. You can access the video’s online at:
There are a number of ways that the video’s can be used:
Share them on your churches Facebook page or share the Youtube links to each week’s episode in your churches WhatsApp group
Play them in church during Sabbath School or before the Divine Service
Use them during Youth Sabbath School class
Play them in AYS
Use them in Personal Ministries timeslots
Use them in conjunction with reading through the Great Controversy
We pray that this may be of blessing to you and ask that you let us know any feedback you may have throughout the year. Please look out for other events which will take place during the year
