Friday Flashback in Youth Ministry...Songs on Transparencies
As graduations finish up this past weekend I thought of when I graduated high school. I got a lot of money for graduation gifts. I used part of my money to buy several boxes of blank transparencies, a black transparency box, and a Fender guitar. I knew that at sometime I would use them when I started in Youth Ministry. Later that summer before I left to come to the University of South Carolina I went up to my church and spent several hours making hard copies and transparencies of my youth pastor's song box. I look back and laugh as now I have all my music saved in PDF and view my music on my iPad as we stream it through Media Shout and ProPresenter. I think back of having to have someone manually move the songs.
To this day I still have my box of songs and my original songbook with all the hard copies of the songs. I think sometime soon I might do a Sunday Night youth program using these ancient forms of youth ministry!
