New Videos: Super Saturday Highlights/Brian McLaren Keynote

WILBRAHAM, MA -- Two new videos released today show highlights from the 2017 Super Saturday Event, a joint effort by the CT, MA, and RI Conferences of the United Church of Christ. The event featured keynote speaker Brian McLaren, worship, and workshops aimed at developing and strengthening church leaders in a wide variety of topics. The second video is a full version of McLaren's speech.
"The house is on fire, and it's time to wake up and get bold," said McLaren during his keynote address. This call for boldness set the tone for the entire event.
The Highlights video offers moments of McLaren's speech and other parts of the day, including excerpts from interviews given by Brian Lapis in which he asked participants to discuss views on their church's impacts in the community and the current and future directions of the wider church. Are of these interviews will be available at a future date.
In the afternoon worship, Rev. Rebecca Floyd Marshall (Rhode Island Conference) and Rev. John Allen (Massachusetts Conference) shared a compilation of "hindrances" offered by the audience during the morning worship. Those hindrances are shown in the video.

Below is the full version of Brian McLaren's speech.
