Reader Appreciation

When other blogs reach a particular milestone, they sometimes ask readers to introduce themselves.  Light from Light is a very modest blog, but it did recently pass a statistical milestone involving a one and some zeros, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the reader(s).

Instead of asking the reader(s) to simply state their name, city, and occupation; I thought it might be fun to ask the reader(s) to post a favorite YouTube video.  Posting a YouTube video in the comments is easy:  Just copy and paste the video’s URL into the message.  It might be fun to hear why you like the video as well.

All I ask is that the video be rated for a general audience.  Now, I’ll hold my breath, and hope that the reader(s) has/have enough enthusiasm to generate at least one response.


Hopefully, the reader isn’t using dial-up.

  1. Well, since I read my own blog … I chose this video simply because it’s fun. “Oh when the Saints go marching in …”

  2. Congratulations on reaching the latest milestone. Here’s a video I recently shared on the 4th of July. Our family has always loved the Muppets and this one’s pretty funny…

  3. Video sharing – good idea! Here’s a lovely, moving choral selection paired with images from the Castle Church in Wittenburg. Why do I like it? Just read the words.

    E’en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come

    Music by Paul Manz, text adapted by Ruth Manz
    Revelation 21:1-4

    Peace be to you and grace from him
    Who freed us from our sins,
    Who loved us all and shed his blood
    That we might saved be.

    Sing holy, holy to our Lord,
    The Lord, Almighty God,
    Who was and is and is to come;
    Sing holy, holy, Lord!

    Rejoice in heaven, all ye that dwell therein,
    Rejoice on earth, ye saints below,
    For Christ is coming, is coming soon,
    For Christ is coming soon!

    E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come,
    And night shall be no more;
    They need no light nor lamp nor sun,
    For Christ will be their All!

  4. Coming to you from Sleepy Eye, MN. congrats on your blogging milestone!

    My family recently enjoyed the a cappella group “Chapter 6” at the WELS Youth Rally. Here’s a fun video featuring the Wizard of Oz in 5 minutes …

  5. Since everyone else posted fun stuff, can I try to be funny too? Here’s some contemporary Christian music from the 70’s. There’s a lesson here somewhere…

  6. Cindy,

    I have already watched and enjoyed your first video choice a number of times. It is very beautiful.

    Even the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of man. (Man’s wisdom in the 2nd video eventually looks silly). The world says, “Dress up the boring word so that it is exciting and fun.” To the world, the pure Word and the efficacious Sacraments are boring, but they are boring to them only because they do not see with the eyes of faith.

    Baptism is so simple, lowly, common. But in heaven a bell is ringing, and an angel is yelling, “Stop the presses! This is what happened today at this baptism!” We don’t see that, but that is what God’s promise is … [Rev. Deutschlander on Issues, Etc., June 23, 2009].

    It is not our job to appeal to blind eyes, but rather we are to give them new eyes that can see. When unbelievers look at Jesus, they see only a man; and according to the world, Jesus lived his life completely wrong.

    Here is a video about a man who did not follow man’s wisdom. Here was a man who lived his life perfectly according to God’s wisdom, and did not mix in any of man’s wisdom. The wisdom of God and the wisdom of man do not mix.
