"From Jesus to Christ" online

If I had to develop a DIY training plan for ministry leaders — especially Unitarian and Universalist Christian ones — I would surely include the PBS Frontline series “From Jesus to Christ” (1998) as a resource. I had just finished my seminary education the year before, and was quite impressed in watching it. So when I was temping at PBS in 2007 and saw that it was being discontinued, I got a copy.

But I’m guessing you didn’t get your copy, right? Fear not, the series is now available to view online at PBS. (Hat tip: Tensegrities) I would love to know if viewers from outside the United States can watch it.

Open media formats for Unitarian Universalists

Are there any Unitarian Universalists — or keen open codec advocates who read this blog — who use Ogg Vorbis (audio) or Ogg Theora (video) to play, share, stream or store media? These are free and open-source media formats.

I may have a project.

In related news, I bought a refurb digital audio player (“MP3 player”) that supports Ogg and am enjoying it much. Of course, it takes a bit of work with Linux, but I hope to tell all once I have a successful workflow.
