I didn't see a thread on this, we have one for movies/tv shows, but post any videos you are watching from YouTube or elsewhere.

Tim Keller: Re-enchanting Our World

The glory and creation of God bears such unknowable depth that to know Him is to be enchaned with awe and wonder. Yet within our consumer society, our obsession with material gain can trump our wonder for God. Drawing from Charles Taylor's work describing how we in the West became a "disenchanged" society, Keller explores in this CFW Conference resource how this disenchantment, while bringing a greater sense of human autonomy and freedom, has also brought a "malaise of modernity", stripping away a deeper sense of our humanity and the meaning and purpose that had been associated with an "enchanged" world. How did we get here? How do we move forward toward a re-enchanged view of God's creation and technological tools we employ? How does the knowledge of God who made us in His image re-affirm our identity and renew our call to cultivate this world in His likeness?
"The business of the Christian is nothing else than to be ever preparing for death (μελεπᾷν ἀποθνήσκειν)."

— Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, Fragment XI

I've been watching a video series called "Google Translate Sings:" the channel host runs various song lyrics through multiple languages in Google Translate and then after translating them back into English, sings the re-translated version.  Some of them are pretty funny.  Here's a sample of "I See the Light" from Tangled
Most Holy Theotokos save us!

I have really enjoyed this modern resetting of Gregorian chant by the monks of Conception Abbey.

The action of the video is nothing special, but I've let it run in the background around the house a couple of times.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
