Recordings of the Live Broadcasts!

 

AC logo

Live broadcasts from Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, July 3-7, 2010, were recorded, and are presented for you here below. We are still working to provide the best recordings possible, so please see the tech notes at the bottom of the page, and if you encounter technical difficulties please let us know.

Viewing Hints

Please note that each recording allows you full control of volume, playback position (slider), and a full-screen option (the box to the far right on the player control bar).

The recordings are sorted by category: first Worships, then Business, Dinner Speakers, Special Response Hearings, Insight Sessions, and the Deacon Training.  Enjoy!

Tech Notes:

Sixteen different broadcasts were made available live from Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, held July 3-7, 2010.  Of those, permission was received to record 15 of them, and so these are the 15 recordings that you see above.

Please note that the choice had to be made to move these recordings away from our broadcast platform in order to reduce our costs, and so the format looks different than what was available during the broadcasts and in the few weeks afterward.  We are still working to create the best video files possible.  Your feedback will assist us, if you see things we should address.

There are still three recordings missing, ones that were lost due to network issues on Saturday evening of Conference.  We are still working to re-create those files, and intend to have them available as soon as we are able.  Thanks for your patient understanding as we work through this pilot project, including many issues that we were not able to anticipate!

 

For technical questions or assistance, please contact Enten Eller,
Director of Electronic Communication at Bethany Seminary,
at Enten@BethanySeminary.edu or 765-983-1831.

MattMy thesis began its journey while learning Hebrew at the University of Notre Dame, back when I was an employee in the Information Technology department. Among the many Hebrew texts read, it was the Song of Songs in particular that caught my attention. I knew that historically it had been interpreted as an allegorical text exploring God's love of Israel (or the church), but I had not encountered the deeply sensual nature of the images and the erotic tone of the text. Reading through the book, the unabashed sexuality of the words struck me as completely different than how the rest of the Bible treats sex. During the previous semester we had read selections of Ezekiel, where sex and female desire is cast as idolatrous and evil. In the Song, it is unashamed and extolled.
