As you read, pray, and ponder the Gospel and try the “Suggestions for Prayer and Embodiment” in Embodying Mark, you are invited to share ideas, images, and video clips of your experience. These might be ideas you have for kinds of creative expressions I have not thought to mention in the book or images of things you have created in response to the spiritual exercises or video clips of group presentations of the text or other activities. Or you may just wish to share a thought about the Gospel.
If your creative expression, thought, or idea is not related to a particular part of Mark but more broadly to embodying love or gospel generally, then please share that in a reply box at the bottom of this page. If what you wish to share relates to something in a particular chapter of Embodying Mark, you may choose the page above for the chapter of the book to which your contribution relates (click on Embodying Mark, and then select the relevant chapter). Then use the Reply box at the bottom of that page to share whatever you would like.
If it is a thought or an idea, tell us about it, share an expression of it, or if you find an example of embodying love online or something that inspires you (or might inspire others) to create, give us the link to that. For example, in the third comment box below, I have shared something that might encourage someone to try creative expression with drawing and color.
If it is a video, first put your video on YouTube, and then paste the URL (the YouTube address for that video) into your message in the Reply box, and the YouTube video will show up there; to get the right address for this, click on Share (you’ll see this option below the video) and then select Embed and copy the address that comes up, then paste it into the Reply box, and once you post it, the video should appear. In the second comment box below, I have put an example of a video — of my own telling of Mark 1:1-15, which I made in my living room on my laptop.
If it is a photo you would like to share, you can do this through any of a number of websites that allow you to share photos; I have tried it with Flickr, and to do it there, you tell it that you’d like to share the HTML (it lets you choose Link, HTML, or BBCode when you say you want to share the photo; you select HTML, and also select HTML rather than Embed). You may wish to write something about the photo or video. I have put an example of a photo shared from Flickr in the first comment box below
Blessings on you as you ponder, pray, imagine, and share the Gospel.
