Look at the Camera

One tip I find myself giving preachers in these COVID-19 days: Look at the camera. I know it feels strange, but the more you look directly at the lens, the more connected your people will feel. Nobody wants to be glanced at, nobody wants to be read to. To really connect, you must imagine your people sitting on the other side of the camera, desperately hoping a fellow human being can somehow bring the Word to their situation.

This is a skill that can be developed over time. If you need help, a single coaching session might be just the ticket.

Yes, you must look people “in the eye”, even if it’s a little black circle. They’ll look right back at you!

Pastor, I’m praying for you as you continue to fulfill your calling. The Lord is with you. May we continue to steward our gifts daily, for the sake of His glory and a world in need.

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson). I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).
