2014 NYC Conference Recordings: Identity, Anxiety & the Christian Messageby Mockingbird on Apr 15, 2014 • 11:03 am 3 Comments
An incredibly heartfelt thank-you to everyone who helped put on this year’s Mockingbird Conference in NYC, especially our friends at Calvary St. George’s Church. We took some risks this time around, and if reports are to be believed, it sounds like they paid off. Phew!
We are once again making the recordings available at no charge; we only ask that those who were not able to attend this year *consider* making a donation to help cover the cost of the event. Download links are followed by an in-line player for each recording. Almost everything was videotaped, and we’ll be rolling the clips out gradually over the next few weeks (some of the presentations won’t make much sense without the accompanying footage). At the bottom we have provided a link at the very bottom to download everything in one big file.
