    I’m here in a Covid-day in mid-April and just finished this episode. It was interesting listening now in the midst of the quarantine. One of the points raised was that a video sermon is not a sermon. As a live-preaching practitioner (and one that would requires it for a MultiChurch/ church-planting church), how should we think about (say) the video exposition released on our church’s platform?

    Was it non-authoritative? Would having the church listen to a podcast be sufficient? Would it, then, be okay for a complimentarian church to have a female teaching in that spot?

    (Note: I *really* didn’t like preaching to a video, and some of the reasons given in dissent of video-preaching in the podcast were felt)
