The Feedback Loop! – Easter 5 to Ordinary 21
Welcome back to the MTH Feedback Loop, a bonus episode where Molly and David talk about some of the multiple intelligence illustrations and special effects from previous More Than Hearing episodes that we have actually used in worship and how they turned out.
It’s been about 5 months since we made the loop, so we had dozens of illustrations and special effects that we’ve tried since then! We sorted through them and picked some of the most interesting to tell you about, either because they worked really well or because they didn’t go as well as we had hoped. We hope you enjoy hearing about them and that the Loop will encourage you in your efforts to include multiple intelligences in your sermons and worship, because however it goes, you aren’t alone, and you’re being faithful in the effort to make God’s Word more accessible for more people.
