Good Stuff in TEC: North Carolina

New Medium: Rector uses YouTube to reach those who don't look for God in traditional places.

Rice, 29, has been the rector at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church since June. He has been writing a blog for three years and creating videos and posting them to YouTube since January 2007. He said that he sees the blog and videos as a way to reach an audience that may not look for God in such traditional places as church.

"I think we're in a post-Christian world," he said. "There's not a cultural impetus for people to come to church on Sunday. "The hope for the videos is that they would be a nonintrusive introduction to the faith first of all, and then an introduction to this community of faith."

You can see all of the good stuff posts by entering "Good Stuff" into the blog's search engine.
