The Pulse for April 2010

, , , ,

It’s done! It’s up! And it’s available now!

Following our new debate model for the Pulse, this time our big question is

Money or Missionaries: Which should we send?

The latest edition of the Pulse is available by clicking here (this is the second in this online format — the first is available here).

We invite you to read the authors’ perspectives, and then you’re welcome to share your own thoughts here in the comments (please give us a little context for which article or thought you’re addressing). The invitation to comment applies to the whole site — each post offers a place to comment. As usual, the Pulse also contains news and updates from many of our ministries across Canada and around the world.

You can even download a pdf version of the Pulse, to print and keep for yourself.

See all of the Pulse-related content on this blog, including PulseTV, by clicking here.

New PulseTV Episode Up!

, , , , ,

PulseTV is back with a new episode (this is the 4th one, if that kind of thing matters to you). Our two capable anchormen, Rich and Bill are back with compelling stories, one from Canada, and one from abroad. A name you may not have heard is Jeff — he’s a fourth year student at Trinity Western University, and is helping with a variety of our communication efforts. The process of shooting and editing this video was pretty much entirely left up to him. Thanks Jeff!

As always, this video is viewable on YouTube (above), and for downloading to your own computer (right-click on links below to save files):
Download the MP4 version (43.8MB)
Download the WMV version (25.4MB)

We hope that these stories are encouraging to you and the people around you as you share them. We’d love to hear how you’re using these in your social groups in the comments below.

The Pulse is Live!

The Pulse publication has now gone online. Check it out by clicking here.

Our theme is Works or Words: What Do We Lead With?

This edition also kicks off a new format. We are using the Pulse to host charitable debate on a new topic each time. Leaders will be given the chance to speak their piece, and then even address each other’s points.

We are excited to bring you as much dynamic, compelling content as we can all in one document, with a new page-flip look that’s easy and fun to navigate. You can also download a pdf for yourself, which you may find useful for printing if you need to read it in your hands.

Over the next little while, we will add Pulse content into the main body of the website in order to keep the dialogue going. As always, feel free to comment on anything you see!

PulseTV Episode 3 has Landed!

, , , , ,

PulseTV shares the stories of what God is going in Canada and around the world. We’re pleased to be publishing Episode 3. Please take a look and share with your church, your family and your friends. The vast majority of the world has never heard of PulseTV — you can do your part to change that!

You can watch the embedded clip above, or you can download the video files below. (Simply right-click and select “save as”.)
Download the MP4 version (28.5MB)
Download the WMV version (27MB)

A DVD is being copied and distributed to all of our churches which will include all three Episodes. Your feedback (even constructive criticism!) is welcome in the comments section.

PulseTV Episode 2

, , , , ,

Episode 2 is here!

Not only is it available online, but just like the first episode, I’ve also made it available in two different versions for download (simply right click and select “save link as…”):
MP4 version (approx 17.5MB)
WMV version (approx 23MB)

Additionally we have a convenient DVD with both episodes heading to all of our EFCC congregations with the printed Pulse. The Pulse and PulseTV, together at last. Cue violin music and sunset lighting. :-)

We appreciate your comments and suggestions offered for Episode 1. We’ve tried to incorporate many of them into Episode 2. And with your help, we’ll keep making it better as we go.

We hope that you will be encouraged and inspired as we continue to share the stories of what God is doing in Canada and around the world. We hope that you’ll share these stories with others, and that you’ll share your stories with us!
