Tales From The Church – True Crazy Christian Stories

When I was a kid, I saw all kinds of crazy bullshit at Church. In this video, I share my kooky experiences and at the same time give Christians the greatest news in the world! My grandmother disowning me last week really fucked with my head and made me not want to do videos anymore. She was the last person on earth I ever thought would turn her back on me. It really broke my heart and caused me to behave in a way I never have before. It made me want to stop making videos because these videos really have cost me the majority of my family. People really have no idea what I sacrifice just to do this. But that whiny quitter guy is not me and my moment of weakness only lasted about 3 days. I’m actually kinda embarrassed about the whole thing, but in a way I’m glad it happened. Because it showed me who my true friends and family are. I got so much support and love from my Youtube family, that I am ashamed I ever considered leaving to begin with. Well fear not. I’m not going anywhere. As long as you guys are here, I will be here. Thank you all very much for being there for me when I needed you. Thisvideo is Sponsored by the Adult Autopilot.

Homeless Youth in Indy – their stories of resilience

Every night, hundreds of Indianapolis children call emergency shelters home. In addition, thousands more live with extended family or friends, or stay in hotels or motels because they do not have a home of their own. These are real children whose futures are at risk. However, they are being helped by people who care, starting with their parents, service providers, and community organizations, churches and volunteers. Watch and listen as they share their stories of resilience and determination in the face of homelessness.

We hear from a lawyer, a pilot, a nurse, an executive, a homemaker, two priests and a bishop what it meant for them to make this journey. Their stories raise larger issues of conversion, discernment, inclusion, church membership and belonging.

Christmas Carols Expert Releases 22 Amazing Videos About Little-Known Stories Behind Holiday Classics




Cape May, NJ (PRWEB) December 17, 2009

In the culmination of a 4,000 mile journey taking over a year, Ron Clancy is introducing twenty-two videos that trace the history of some of the most popular American Christmas carols on his website http://www.christmasclassics.com/christmas-classics-videos.shtml.

The videos, available on his website, provide compelling, little-known personal stories behind the music and act as a partner for Clancy’s American Christmas Classics boxed set-collection spanning 200 years of American Christmas music. The stories, mostly about traditional gems found in the collection, are also about a few carols from his first title Best-Loved Christmas Carols and his fourth book/CD collection Sacred Christmas Music. The music collection, one of the largest and mostly highly copyright protected ever assembled for public sale, represents both secular and religious favorites written in America.

Ron Clancy’s life long dream to create the classics collections combining historical perspective, fascinating stories, period art, song lyrics, and music CDs is a reality and is further augmented by the production of the videos. John Grossmann’s feature article, titled “The Carol King,” details the saga

of Clancy’s ambitious venture and is now available for print on http://www.featurewell.com/?CID=7

The author’s travels started in Savannah, GA, and the “Jingle Bells” Church where the song’s composer, who fought for the Confederacy while his brother fought on the Union side in the Civil War, was music director. Clancy then visited St. Helena, SC, once a port of call for the slave trade, where the spiritual “Mary Had a Baby” may have originated.

The journey continued through North Carolina, Michigan, Boston, New York, and ended in Philadelphia where, amongst other stops, he went to Independence Hall and the Holy Trinity Church on Rittenhouse Square, to shed light on one of our most endearing carols, “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Its author, Rev. Phillips Brooks, one of country’s most prominent preachers at the time, was grief-stricken over the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 and the horrors of the Civil War so, for solace, he went to the Holy Land. As he witnessed a Christmas Eve service there, the Rev. Brooks was inspired to compose his carol poem.

American Christmas Classics special boxed set and 3 CDs is not available in stores but can be ordered from the website for .95 – half off the suggested retail price. There is no better way to celebrate the Christmas holiday than with hours of the most popular Christmas music in the country and a better understanding of how that music was written.

William E. Studwell, a foremost authority on Christmas carols, once wrote: “Clancy’s exceptional publications are probably better than anything I may have produced. I can take vicarious joy in having even a slight connection with these masterpieces of holiday literature. They are the ultimate Christmas collection.”

According to Joel Welin, Herald Tribune, Sarasota, Fl, “Each Season, some company attempts to span the decades of holiday music with a compilation of favorites… and most often falls short… But for timeless carols and songs (no contemporary tuneage here, dude) and immaculate presentation, nothing this season holds a candle to Ronald M. Clancy’s “Best-Loved Christmas Carols” and “American Christmas Classics.”
