Father Matthew Moretz, an Episcopal priest who has built up a nice following with his quirky video blogs on YouTube, has a new address.
He’s moved from St. Paul’s in Yonkers to Christ’s Church in Rye.
But he’s still posting “Father Matthew Presents.”:http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%22father+matthew+presents%22&search=Search
He did one recently called “Making sense of sin.”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr0omWJUtNE In this post, Moretz rejects many common definitions of sin Ã¢â‚¬â€ the breaking of laws, separation from God, excessive pride Ã¢â‚¬â€ as being too limiting.
He prefers the idea that sin is like the blocking of the flow of God’s love and gifts, “like a blockage in an artery.”
If you watch his posts, it’s clear that Moretz is trying to reach people who have been turned off by organized religion. He often apologizes for past offenses against his viewers.
And he tries to get to the heart of the various questions that real folks wonder about.
